Gender Inequality

Gender Inequality

The 2019 SDG Gender Index finds that nearly 40% of women and girls live in countries that are “failing on achieving gender equality.” Making SDG 5 - Gender Equality one of the worst performing SDGs.

Course Description

Integral to the SDGs is a ‘leave no one behind’ slogan to ensure that the goals impact people from all walks of life, in equal measure by the year 2030. This makes SDG – Gender Equality an important goal to achieve. 

It is therefore puzzling to still see numbers like - women doing 2.6 times more unpaid care and domestic work than men and women representation in political offices still being at 23.7%. However, several activists are working hard to overcome many of these challenges and many have made incredible contributions.
