Gender indices can provide a summary measure of different indicators affecting the wellbeing and development of women and girls. This research and practice note looks in detail at five global indices that provide the best measures of gender equality and empowerment: the Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI); the Gender Inequality Index (GIE); the Global Gender Gap Index (GGGI); the African Gender Inequality Index (GEI); and the African Gender Development Index (AGDI).
