The Constitution of the Portuguese Republic enshrines the principle of gender equality and the promotion of equality between men and women as a fundamental task of the State, but women continue to experience discrimination. Portugal does not have a recent history of conflict. Portugal is ranked 33 out of 144 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) for 2017. It ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1980 without any reservations and ratified the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on 25 September 2014. During the 2017 October Open Debate, Portugal gave a statement affirming support for WPS and expressed its commitment, among other actions, to continue actively promoting the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in the main multilateral forums to which Portugal is a party and in its National Action Plan, and to conduct training programs on gender equality and violence against women and girls, including sexual violence, gender-based violence and trafficking in human beings. In 2017, $37.7 bln were spent by Portugal on its military; subsequently, the National Action Plan on the Implementation of Resolution 1325 (2000) has no allocated budget. Women's rights organisations in Portugal address issues such as greater women's political participation, violence against women and other forms of discrimination.
