Since fighting poverty through access to education, political representation, or economic opportunities, the world has “abandoned women and girls, complained the United Nations Organization (ONU) in a report on the inequalities between men and women.
The report of HIM Women reviews the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by member states in 2015, aimed at building a better future for everyone by 2030.
“When we look at the data, it seems that the world is not progressing or not meeting the goal of gender equality. And I would say it’s becoming an increasingly distant goal,” said Sarah Hendriks, deputy managing director of UN Women.
One of the SDGs envisages an end to discrimination by the end of the decade, including the abolition of violence against womenForced marriages and genital mutilation, housework shared, access to sexual health, and effective participation in political and economic life
But “halfway to 2030 is the world,” let women down and girls,” and most of the targets of this specific target are not going in the right direction, the report said.
245 million every year Women over 15 years old are victims of physical violence from their partners; one in five women marries before the age of 18; Women work 2.8 hours more than men in housework than men, and they make up just 26.7 percent of parliamentarians.
It would take time to change things $360 billion in additional investments per year in fifty developing countries, home to 70 percent of the world’s population, the agency estimates.
“We know what needs to be done and the world must pay for it. If we convert that gender equality For a given development goal, the trajectory can change,” he stressed, urging that “women and girls be at the heart” of those goals.
In July the HIM assessed that the SDGs were “under threat” and called for one “rescue plan” before the summit to analyze the situation that will take place on September 18th and 19th.
Accordingly HIMAccording to the current status, 575 million people will live there extreme poverty far from expected eradication by 2030. And 342 million are women, eight percent of all women in the world, the report recalls. ej
