WEF Blog Post Discusses Global Efforts To Reach Gender Equality

World Economic Forum: There isn’t a single country on track to make the U.N.’s targets for gender equality
Charlotte Edmond of Formative Content discusses global efforts to achieve gender equality, writing, “Not a single nation is doing enough to improve the lives of women and girls — one of the U.N.’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which countries have pledged to meet by 2030 — according to the first index created to track progress towards the goal.” Edmond concludes, “The findings reflect The World Economic Forum’s own Global Gender Gap report, which shows that at the current rate of change the global gender gap will take 108 years to close. In 2018, women’s access to health and education and political empowerment all saw the gender gap increase” (6/11).
