Political volatility and violence in Côte d’Ivoire have increased poverty and mass displacement[1]and have had a profound impact on the security and wellbeing of the entire civilian population, particularly women and children given the widespread use of rape and sexual violence during the civil strife.[2] Overall, women’s position in Ivoirian society remains low, with many subjected to discriminatory practices, significantly limiting the capacity of women to play an active role in society, as well as representing violations of their human rights. 
Article 30 of the Ivoirian Constitution – adopted following a referendum in 2000 – grants equal rights to women, and article 3 commits the state to taking appropriate measures to ensure the development of women and realisation of their human rights.[3] The country ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1995, and in 2012, it ratified the Optional Protocol on violence against women. Côte d’Ivoire has also signed but not ratified the Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa.[4]
