The elimination of gender inequalities and the empowerment of women and girls will accelerate the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Evidence shows that women’s economic empowerment raises economic productivity, reduces infant and maternal mortality, improves nutrition, promotes health, increases the chances of education for future generations and advances women’s rights. To accelerate progress in the years ahead, we must recognize women as vital agents of change and remove the barriers, including their disproportionate burden of unpaid care work, to their full economic potential.
