Abstract [en]

This essay’s problem is based on the subordination of women that exists worldwide, more specifically on womens rights. The study examined six countries with case study as a method. The countries were chosen based on their ranking on the Global Democracy Ranking of 2015. The countries chosen were the two who got the best grades, the two in the middle and the two who came last. With three different theoretical foundations, the UN Women’s CEDAW-convention, Yvonne Hirdman’s gender theory and Global Democracy Ranking, the countries were examined and led to the following conclusions: the work with women’s rights have progressed further the higher ranking a country has on the Global Democracy Ranking and Hirdmans gender theory can be seen as one of the explanations for the existing inequality. The study also noted that there is a connection between the ratification of the CEDAW-convention and Women’s rights.
