UN Women's Global Gender Equality Constitutional Database

The Global Gender Equality Constitutional Database is a repository of gender equality related provisions extracted from 195 constitutions from around the world. The countries are organized according to five geographical regions (Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania) and are reflective of the Member States and Territories of the United Nations.

Although a number of constitutional websites and resources that contain constitutions on a global scale are available, this Global Gender Equality Constitutional Database is the first searchable database that specifically presents constitutional provisions through a gender lens. The constitutional provisions contained in the database are grouped under 24 categories and 19 sub categories. To date, the database reflects 75 different languages. The gender equality constitutional database is a one-stop resource for a variety of technical and non-technical users such as gender advocates, constitutional courts, public interest litigators, civic educators, and academic institutions.
