Insights from the Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI 2019)

What is SIGI?

The OECD Development Centre's SIGI looks at the gaps that legislation, social norms and practices create between women and men in terms of rights and opportunities. Drawing on the evidence-based analysis of the SIGI 2019 Global Report, the event will be an opportunity to share new data informing policy debates on social norms and discrimination against women and girls across the globe. Panellists will notably share concrete examples of how gender-transformative policies and programmes can challenge gender norms and promote women's rights, gender equality and sustainable development.
