At the end of the civil war in 1992, the Government in Mozambique introduced significant reforms to improve the status of women in the country, including changes to family and land law. However, women’s position continues to be undermined as a result of the prevalence of discriminatory attitudes and practices. Mozambique ranks 29 out of 144 countries listed on the 2017 Global Gender Gap Index (GGI). Mozambique has not ratified the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). In 2017, $103 million was spent by Mozambique on its military. Currently, Mozambique does not have a NAP and acceded to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) on 21 April 1997. However, despite this, the provisions of CEDAW are often violated in law and practice. These violations are most apparent in areas of women's property and inheritance rights due to ignorance of the law and social stigmas.
