Unsafe countries for women in Africa

Nigeria has been ranked 10th in the list of Africa’s most unsafe countries for women, according to global Women Peace and Security Index 2023.

In the list, the Central African Republic ranks number one while DR Congo and South Sudan rank second and third respectively.

However, the smallest country in Africa, Seychelles ranks number one in Africa’s safest countries for women followed by Cape Verde and South Africa.

The 2023 edition of the global Women Peace and Security Index (WPS Index) scores and ranks 177 countries in terms of women’s inclusion, justice, and security.

No country performs perfectly on the WPS Index and the results reveal wide disparities across countries, regions, and indicators.

The WPS Index offers a tool for identifying where resources and accountability are needed most to advance women’s status – which benefits us all.

The WPS Index is published by the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security and the PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security with support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
