Country Gender Equality Profile for Liberia

The report provides a brief analysis of how the state of gender equality in Liberia remains fragile, and is a topic that requires attention, commitment, and collective endeavor. As part of increasing efforts to break away from this reality and eliminate all forms of gender-based discrimination, the Country Gender Equality Profile (CGEP) represents an important guide to assess the existing situation regarding women’s empowerment and gender equality in Liberia.

CGEP Liberia

The CGEP describes and analyses the current situation in Liberia based on international norms and standards, including the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BDPfA)22, while accounting for the country’s existing legislation and policies.
