Gates Foundation Pledges $80M To Collect Data On Indicators Related To Gender Equality Goals

The Guardian: Gates Foundation commits $80m to plugging gender equality data gap
“…The money, announced on Tuesday and to be distributed over the next three years, will support national statistics offices to collect and refine reliable information on the contribution women and girls make to society and the barriers they face in fulfilling their potential. Specific areas that need more data include the amount of unpaid work women carry out in the home and gender-based violence, often regarded as too difficult to collect. The information will be used to shape programs and policies that will help meet the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in September…” (Ford, 5/17).
