The Constitution states that all persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law, and the government generally respects these provisions. Despite the progress Singapore has made, gender equality has not been achieved in terms of women’s educational attainment, economic empowerment or political participation. Singapore women are poorer than men and face a higher risk of poverty than men in all ages. Singapore does not have a recent history of conflict. Singapore is ranked 65 out of 144 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) for 2017 and ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1995. Singapore signed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on 5 December 2015 but has not yet ratified the treaty. During the 2017 October Security Council Open Debate, Singapore did not make any statements affirming support for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 and the WPS Agenda holistically. In 2017, $10,198,000,000 bln was spent by Singapore on its military; however, they have not developed a National Action Plan on the Implementation of Resolution 1325 (2000). Women's rights activists in Singapore work to prevent human trafficking, migrant worker's rights, social justice and equality.
