Countries failing on gender equality, SDG Index finds - Daily Star
Star Health Report
Results for 129 countries measured by a new Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Gender Index released by Equal Measures 2030 show that the world is far from achieving gender equality, with 1.4 billion girls and women living in countries that get a "very poor" failing grade on gender equality.
The SDG Gender Index, launched at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference recently, is the most comprehensive tool available to measure the state of gender equality aligned to the SDGs. The index, covering 14 of the 17 SDGs, measures countries on 51 issues ranging from health, gender-based violence, climate change, decent work and others.
