Social Institutions and Gender Index

The OECD Social Institutions and Gender Index series analyses how formal and informal laws, social norms and practices discriminate on the basis of gender and helps governments and development practitioners identify policies and programmes to tackle this discrimination. Legal reforms promoting women’s empowerment and gender equality will only go so far unless social norms change. The SIGI series proposes gender-transformative actions at the international, regional and national levels. It identifies the underlying drivers of gender inequality and proposes whole-of-society entry points to build more inclusive societies and opportunities for all.
