GenderPositive.com is a part of the 17Goals1Future movement which supports the United Nations sustainable development goals.
GenderPositive.com supports the fifth sustainable development goal: gender equality. While some forms of discrimination against women and girls are diminishing, gender inequality continues to hold women back and deprives them of basic rights and opportunities. Empowering women requires addressing structural issues such as unfair social norms and attitudes as well as developing progressive legal frameworks that promote equality between women and men.
Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Unfortunately, at the current time, 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 15-49 have reported experiencing physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner within a 12-month period and 49 countries currently have no laws protecting women from domestic violence.
17Goals1Future community strives to create a better world for everyone. It acknowledges that we must all work together to create a better future and gives a framework for individuals and businesses to get involved and help solve the challenges of our time.
