Saudi Arabia does not have a recent history of large-scale conflict, but is a key player in the region. Women are generally excluded from political affairs in Saudi Arabia. However, in January 2013 a royal decree established that women would receive at least 20 percent of the seats on the Consultative Council. A 2011 decree gave women the right to vote and seek seats in the 2015 municipal council elections. Saudi Arabia is ranked 138 out of 144 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) for 2017 and it has ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 2000. Saudi Arabia has not signed nor ratified the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Saudi Arabia participated in the 2017 Open Debate on WPS but did not make any concrete commitments. In 2016, Saudi Arabia spent $69,413,000,000 bln on its military; Saudi Arabia has not adopted a National Action Plan for the Implementation of UNSCR 1325. Under the guardianship system, girls and women are forbidden from traveling or conducting official business without permission from their male guardians. Likewise, under un-codified rules on personal status, women often face discrimination in relation to marriage, divorce and custody of children. Women face additional discrimination in gaining access to justice. Female activists in Saudi Arabia today work to expand women's rights and push for government reform.
