TURNING PROMISES INTO ACTION: Gender Equality in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

This report by UN Women, Turning Promises into Action, comes at a critical time. More than two years into the life of the 2030 Agenda, it calls for dramatic advances in statistics, financing and policies for gender equality, as well as more determined steps towards democratic governance and accountability. Based on robust data and expert analysis, the report takes stock of where we stand on key aspects of gender equality globally; tells us what is needed to monitor progress meaningfully; and provides wide-ranging recommendations for change.
The report leaves no doubt: Gender equality is fundamental to delivering on the promise of the 2030 Agenda. As long as women are economically and socially disempowered in the world of work and in their homes and communities, growth will not be inclusive and we will not succeed in ending poverty. The creation of inclusive and peaceful societies will also remain out of reach until women and girls are safe from all forms of violence and can shape the decisions that affect their lives.
