SDG 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Gender bias is undermining our social fabric and devalues all of us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a tremendous waste of the world’s human potential. By denying women equal rights, we deny half the population a chance to live life at its fullest. Political, economic and social equality for women will benefit all the world’s citizens. Together we can eradicate prejudice and work for equal rights and respect for all.
Women do 2.6 times more unpaid care and domestic work than men. While families, societies and economies depend on this work, for women, it leads lower earnings and less time to engage in non-work activities. In addition to equal distribution of economic resources, which is not only a right, but accelerates development in multiple areas, there needs to be a fair balance of responsibility for unpaid care work between men and women. (UN Women, 2022)
Target 5.1 END DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS. End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere.
Target 5.7 EQUAL RIGHTS TO ECONOMIC RESOURCES, PROPERTY OWNERSHIP AND FINANCIAL SERVICES
Undertake reforms to give women equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to ownership and control over land and other forms of property, financial services, inheritance and natural resources, in accordance with national laws.
Target 5.8 PROMOTE EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
Enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology, to promote the empowerment of women.
THINGS TO DO
⤑ Find a Goal 5 charity you want to support. Any donation, big or small, can make a difference! ⤑ Be aware of gender stereotypes. Recognize them, avoid them and educate others about them. ⤑ Stand up against harassment. Whenever you see or become aware of harassment, whether in the workplace, streets, home or the online space, raise your voice against it. ⤑Find female mentors/leaders. Ensure that some of your role models or mentors are women. There’s a lot you can learn from women in positions of authority. ⤑ Share the workload at home. Sharing domestic responsibilities ensures the work burden doesn’t fall only on one person and instills the value of gender equality and essential life skills in children. ⤑ Stay informed. Follow your local news and stay in touch with the Global Goals.
The socioeconomic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have adversely affected recent progress on gender equality: violence against women and girls has intensified, child marriage is expected to increase after declining in previous years, and increased care work at home is affecting women disproportionately. The pandemic has highlighted the need for swift action to address the gender inequality that remains pervasive globally and to get back on track for achieving gender equality.
