Sex and World Peace: Mapping the Places Where the War on Women Is Still Being Fought

Valerie Hudson, Sex and World PeaceIn conjunction with her recent article in Foreign Policy, Valerie Hudson, author of Sex and World Peace, posted maps that dramatically depict the difficult conditions suffered by women in certain parts of the world.

The maps focus on discrepancy in education, inequality in family law/practice, governmental participation by women, child marriage for girls, maternal mortality, women’s physical security, polygyny, son preference and sex ratio, and trafficking in females. Much of the data and research that informed these maps come from the Women Stats Project, which includes more data to understanding the linkage between the situation of women and the security of nation-states.
