Category Gender Equality

Gender inequality is one of the biggest obstacles to sustainable development, economic growth and poverty reduction. SDG Goal 5 advocates equal opportunities for men and women in economic life, the elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls, the elimination of early and forced marriage, and equal participation at all levels. Gender development focuses specifically on creating opportunities and equality for women and girls within sustainable development goals and programs. In some ways, this area encompasses many of the other specializations but adds an extra layer with gender issues and inequality. Many gender development programs work to increase access to education, human rights, job markets, and health resources. Often, these projects also focus on developing business sustainability for women through microfinance, expanded market access, and cooperative groups. Because gender development spans across multiple other development issues, professionals in this field generally have a wide range of expertise but understand issues specifically related to gender very well.
