Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development

Gender equality is a goal in its own right and a powerful force for upholding the main promise of the 2030 Agenda: to leave no one behind says this UN report. It takes stock of where we stand on key aspects of gender equality globally; tells us what is needed to monitor progress meaningfully; and provides wide ranging recommendations for change.

Two and half years after the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UN Women looks at what it will really take to achieve the 2030 Agenda in its new flagship report “Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 Agenda”. In a first-of-its-kind comprehensive assessment of global and regional trends in achieving the SDGs from a gender perspective, the report demonstrates through concrete data evidence and analysis the pervasive nature of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere.
