Country Gender Equality Profile
The Country Gender Equality Profile (CGEP) represents a guide to assess the existing situation regarding women’s empowerment and gender equality. The CGEP describes and analyses the present situation in Georgia mainly based on the indicators of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while at the same time considering the BPfA and CEDAW frameworks.
The 12 critical areas of the BPfA are reviewed, including the following: women and poverty; the education and training of women; women and health; violence against women; women and armed conflict; women and the economy; women in power and decision-making; women and the media; women in agriculture and the environment; and the girl child. The eleventh and twelfth areas - institutional mechanisms and the human rights of women - are considered cross-cutting for all 10 areas. CGEP relies on quantitative and qualitative data, as well as the country’s existing legislative packages and policies addressing each of these areas.
