The Arab perspective is often absent when international bodies prepare guides to measure the status of women or monitor the gender gap in the Arab region. Therefore, the Arab Women Organization prepared this guide, taking into account the specific cultural and social contexts surrounding Arab women.
The guide contains several guides to measure the development of women’s status in the political, economic, social, health, educational, media and legal fields, and aims to reflect the reality of Arab women and the progress they’ve achieved. The guide is addressed at policy and decision-makers in the Arab region as well as at researchers, scholars, governmental and non-governmental organizations interested in Arab women affairs.
