The WomanStats Project and Database

The WomanStats Project began in 2001, with the goal of investigating the relationship between the security of women and the security of nation-states. To that end, it began an ambitious data compilation/collection effort, resulting in one of the most comprehensive datasets on the status of women worldwide (176 nations, 350 variables, 1995 to present). This presentation will cover our current research projects, and also give a hands-on tutorial in how to use the database and its functionalities. Bring a laptop if you wish.
