GENDER EQUALITY

‘No hope’ global development goals can be achieved without women, says UN Assembly President

Without the full participation and leadership of women, “we have no hope” of realizing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the President of the United Nations General Assembly told gender equality leaders on Monday.

Without ‘transformative shifts,’ women will wait two centuries for gender equality

“I think it's almost a joke that it will take the world so long to create women empowerment, particularly as we know that there’s an economic upside in empowering women in the range of $28 trillion.”
