Constitutional Database

This website compiles all the different provisions related to gender contained in constitutions in countries around the world, available in the original language, along with English translations. The database can be searched by keywords, provisions, regions or countries.
As diverse as the people they govern, constitutions set out principles and rules which set the stage for important rights and protections. If and how these texts include gender has an impact on women. Having women’s rights constitutionally entrenched is an important step towards ensuring that States eliminate gender-based discrimination and advance women’s rights. 

With this searchable online database, UN Women seeks to provide a global mapping tool that places a gender lens to constitutional texts.
