Gender equality

The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 'Gender equality' aims to end all forms of discrimination, violence, and any harmful practices against women and girls. It also calls for the full participation of women at all levels of political and economic decision-making.

In an EU context, the SDG 5 focuses on progress made in abating gender-based violence and in fostering gender equality in education, employment and leadership positions.
