UN Women just released its report on Progress on the Sustainable Development Goals: The Gender Snapshot 2022 [pdf] on September 7th. The report presents the latest evidence on gender equality across all 17 goals, calling out the long road ahead to achieve gender equality. It emphasizes the interlinkages among the goals, the pivotal force gender equality plays in driving progress across the SDGs and women and girls’ central role in leading the way forward.
According to the report, “Violence against women remains high; global health, climate and humanitarian crises have further increased risks of violence, especially for the most vulnerable women and girls; and women feel more unsafe than they did before the pandemic. Women’s representation in positions of power and decision-making remains below parity. Only 48 per cent of data required to track progress on SDG 5 are currently available, rendering women and girls effectively invisible.”
