Gender Equality

Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

No matter how you cut it – socially, economically, legally – girls and women in the poorest countries get a raw deal. Simply put, poverty is sexist and we won’t end it until girls and women everywhere are able to reach their full potential.

This goal is about the girl denied an education or forced into marriage. The mother who risks death when she gives life. The farmer prevented from owning the land she works on.

Making things more equal for girls and women in the poorest countries would also help end extreme poverty faster. That’s because when women rise out of poverty, they are more likely to take their families, communities and even whole countries with them.
