  7. 7. Similarity and differences withother gender indices The Gender Equity Index (GEI) measures the gap between women and men, not their well-being. The UNDP Gender Inequality Index (GII) is designed to measure the negative human development impact of deep social and economic disparities between men and women. The GII includes reproductive health indicators like maternal mortality, adolescents’ fertility and contraceptive use which are missing in the SW GEI.
  8. 8. Similarity and differences withother gender indices TheWorld Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) includes various indicators (economic participation and opportunity; educational attainment; health; and political empowerment; GGI measures gender gaps without taking into consideration a country’s level of development.
  9. 9. Similarity and differences withother gender indices The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Women’s Economic Opportunity Index (WEOI) focuses on laws and regulations about women’s participation in the labor market and social institutions that affect women’s economic participation. It has five dimensions– labour policy and practice, women’s economic opportunity, access to finance, education and training, women’s legal and social status, and general business environment. Each category or sub-category has four to five indicators. This one is a more comprehensive measure, although more focused on economic variables. Like the Gender inequality index, this includes Adolescent Fertility Rate. It also includes finance/credit capabilities, VAW, freedom of movement, property ownership rights, ratifications on different international conventions like CEDAW, and even mobile phone subscriptions.
