This short paper explains what the Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI) is, how it can help you in your work, and how it is being used by governments, development partners, researchers, policy-makers, civil society groups and advocacy organisations and networks. We include the main findings from the SIGI 2019 and from SIGI country studies in Uganda and Burkina Faso, to highlight just how useful it can be in progressing gender equality issues and priorities at both a global and a country level with policies and programmes.
