Women’s rights country by country – interactive

Which countries have laws preventing violence? Which legislate for gender equality? And which countries allow abortion? Using World Bank and UN data, an interactive chart offers a snapshot of women’s rights across the globe. Follow the link and select a region and hover over a country to see how it has legislated for violence, harassment, abortion, property and employment rights, discrimination and equality. Click on a country to tweet a message on the figures. Country data can be viewed in relation to its population size and those of its neighbouring states. Click the centre of the circle to return to the beginning.
