Women's Power Index


Created by CFR’s Women and Foreign Policy program, the Women’s Power Index ranks countries on their progress toward gender parity in political participation. It analyzes the proportion of women who serve as heads of state or government, in cabinets, in national legislatures, as candidates for national legislatures, and in local government bodies, and visualizes the gender gap in political representation.
