KUWAIT CITY, Oct 31: Kuwait ranked 123 in the world and last among the Gulf Cooperation Council countries on the ‘Women, Peace and Security’ index, prepared by Georgetown University, based on changing patterns around women’s empowerment around the world, reports Al-Qabas daily. The UAE ranked first in the Gulf region (24 globally) on the index, Bahrain and Qatar shared the third place in the Gulf (97 globally), then Saudi Arabia (102 globally), followed by Oman (110 globally). Saudi Arabia jumped 18 places to 102 in 2021. Researchers attributed this to improved access to female education and legal reforms that eased restrictions on hiring women.
