Generation Equality accountability report 2023

Halfway through the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the world is failing to achieve gender equality, making it an increasingly distant goal. The latest available data show that, despite the strong rhetoric, none of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 5 (Gender Equality) indicators are met, and multiple crises, regressive laws, violence, and discrimination continue to exacerbate gender inequality.

Launched in 2021 in Mexico City and Paris, Generation Equality is the world’s leading effort to unlock political will and accelerate investment and implementation on gender equality. It brings together organizations from every part of society—through intergenerational, multistakeholder alliances—to catalyse progress, advocate for change, and take bold actions together to deliver concrete, game-changing results for girls and women.

At the Generation Equality midpoint, this second accountability report demonstrates, through compelling analysis of new data, case studies, and inspiring examples, that Generation Equality is gaining momentum and providing a common platform to address the key gender equality issues of our time.
