Putting women’s rights to decent work, quality education and quality public services at the heart of the post-2015 Agenda


A stand-alone sustainable development goal on gender equality that includes targets and indicators aimed at the gender wage gap, women’s participation and leadership, the unpaid care economy and its impact on women’s ability to fully enjoy their economic, social and political rights, women’s access to education, information, land and credit, to stop and prevent violence against women and girls and fair portrayal of women in the media. The gender equality goal must be grounded in the existing policy and normative frameworks for achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment including the Beijing Platform for Action and the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and ILO’s Decent Work Agenda.
