No country in the world is on track to achieve gender equality by 2030 - Harpers Bazaar
The first global index on gender equality has been published and shows that not one country in the world will eliminate gender inequality by 2030 if they carry on at the current rate of change. The SDG Gender Index is part of a broader agreement signed by 193 countries in 2015, in which they all pledged to tackle 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) by the year 2030, many of these relating to gender equality issues.
The results stand as evidence that no country in the index is doing enough to tackle the inequality women and girls are facing. Even in the highest-ranking countries, not enough change is taking place for true equality to be reached by the deadline.
