Gender Justice: Key to Achieving the Millennium Development Goals

Auteurs / éditeurs : UNIFEM

The Millennium Declaration and the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) collectively herald a vision for a more just and equal world. Social, political and economic equality for women is integral to the achievement of all Millennium Development Goals.

Hence, gender justice entails ending the inequalities between women and men that are produced and reproduced in the family, the community, the market and the state. It also requires that mainstream institutions - from justice to economic policymaking - are accountable for tackling the injustice and discrimination that keep too many women poor and excluded.

Gender Justice shows how addressing inequalities, including gender inequality, will be essential to achieving the MDGs.
