The 2030 Agenda is clear: there can be no sustainable development without gender equality. Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 agenda, a global monitoring report by UN Women, asks: How far have we come in turning this new development consensus into results for women and girls, and what is needed to bridge the remaining gaps between rhetoric and reality?
UN Women’s report uncovers significant gaps for women’s empowerment and puts forth a robust agenda to shift gears. It spotlights inequalities and challenges that are faced by women, and identifies gaps and opportunities for gender equality in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
UN Women has produced fact sheets for regions and subregions. The Australian and New Zealand factsheet offers comparisons with the global data.
