From goals to indicators in a framework of sustainable change.
Another turning point came in 2015 when the United Nations adopted a 15 year plan to achieve sustainable global development - the
2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. For the first time one of these goals was devoted to gender equality.
SDG 5 - Achieve Gender Equality and Empower all Women and Girls identifies six key priorities:
- gender rights through legal processes
- violence against women
- child marriage
- female genital cutting
- burden of unpaid care and domestic work
- parliamentary representation of women.
Each of these areas has targets to monitor progress towards the goal.
