This report draws on the Concluding Observations of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). These Concluding Observations relate to law or the absence of law, and this report has attempted to categorize these observations to reflect patterns of discrimination prevalent across the world. Since 2005, this committee has referenced discrimination against women in law in 137 countries. This report provides graphs that give a global picture of discrimination against women related to law. The graphs are divided into four categories: i) "Explicit discrimination in law"; ii) "Discriminatory impact of law"; iii) "Discriminatory implementation of law"; iv) "Discriminatory absence of law". This report also provides a summary table which lists each country along with its specific areas of discrimination in law, as highlighted by the CEDAW Committee in its Concluding Observations.
