Gender inequalities are still deep-rooted in every society. Women suffer from lack of access to decent work and face occupational segregation and gender wage gaps. In many situations, they are denied access to basic education, health care and are also victims of violence and discrimination. They are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes.
Gender equality is, first and foremost, a basic human right. A woman is entitled to live in dignity and in freedom from any kind of fear and discrimination. Empowering women is also an indispensable tool for advancing development and reducing poverty. Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of whole families and communities and to improved better prospects for the next generation.
The importance of gender equality is underscored by its inclusion as one of the eight Millennium Development Goals. Gender equality is acknowledged as being a key to achieving the other seven goals.
