"Learn why a multisectoral approach is necessary to achieve gender equality across all 17 SDGs."

Analyses across countries of who is being left behind demonstrates that among the most disadvantaged are women and girls who face the compounded effects of gender-based and other forms of discrimination. The factors that contribute to women’s and girls’ disadvantage additionally do not operate in isolation. Differences related to wealth, location and ethnicity, for instance, combine to create deep pockets of deprivation across a range of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—from access to education and health care to clean water and decent work.

This publication- produced by UN Women and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs- brings together the latest available evidence on gender equality across all 17 SDGs, underscoring the progress made as well as the action still needed to accelerate progress.
