Achieving Gender Equality Through a Post-2015 Framework
MetadataShow full item record
Achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls must be a central ambition of a post-2015 agenda. Although some progress has been made under the current Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) framework, one in three women are still affected by gender-based violence and around 800 women die every day as a result of childbirth and other pregnancy-related complications. In order to address the persistent and interlinked barriers and challenges that women continue to face in their everyday lives a new development framework must promote gender equality as a human right. It must also seek to address the underlying structural causes of gender inequality by incorporating gender-specific targets across all goals.
