  1. The lack of gender targets for clean energy is harming women and girls

    Global

    Gender inequalities in energy access are substantial but largely unmeasured. SDG 7 – affordable and clean energy – is one of six SDGs without gender-specific indicators. Clean and safe energy is a prerequisite for achieving all the social and economic SDGs, and SDG 5 – gender equality – will only be achieved if a more targeted approach is adopted on energy

  2. Equality depends on reproductive rights

    Campaigns to remove reproductive rights from women will prevent their full participation in society and the economy. Without women’s freedom to choose how and when to have children, there cannot be gender equality

  3. Getting more women in politics

    Global

    Just one in four parliamentarians today are women. Yet, as responses to recent crises have shown, countries with more gender balance among their politicians often fare better than those dominated by men. How do we achieve genuine gender equality in politics?

  4. Always on the frontline in every crisis

    Global

    When crises strike, women and girls consistently suffer disproportionately. We need urgent, systemic change to ensure that gender equality is at the center of crisis response

  5. Towards a women-centered push for Agenda 2030

    Global

    If progress on empowering women and girls was already far too slow, COVID and the war in Ukraine have made entrenched gender inequalities even worse. We must urgently ramp up our support for women and girls across all spheres of development, or the SDGs are doomed to fail

  6. Achieving equality for women: COVID-19 and beyond

    Global

    The pandemic is negatively impacting women more than men, by exacerbating already entrenched inequalities. We need bold, transformative action to dismantle the barriers to women’s progress if we are to achieve SDG 5 by the end of the decade
