The Constitution of Guinea was revised in 2001 to introduce the principles of non-discrimination and gender equality.[1] Article 8 upholds equality between men and women as a fundamental right.[2] Guinea ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1982, but has yet to ratify the Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa.[3] Since 2007 Guinea’s Civil Code has been under revision to remove a significant number of discriminatory measures regarding parental authority, divorce, child custody and the choice of a place of residence and is scheduled to be submitted soon to the legislative body for adoption.[4] In addition, a draft of a special law on gender equality has been drafted and is in the process of being adopted, and a national policy on gender was adopted in 2011.[5]
The World Bank classifies Guinea as a low-income country.[6]
