The Targets

Why it matters:

Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes is key to nurturing the sustainable economies and benefitting societies and humanity at large. Currently, huge disparities between the genders are observed worldwide with women, on average, earning 77 cents for every dollar that men earn doing the same work and 70% of women experiencing physical and/or sexual violence at some point in their lifetime.
