Equal Measures 2030 has recently released the 2019 SDG Gender Index, which finds that nearly 40 per cent of women and girls, or 1.4 billion people, live in countries that are "failing on gender equality."
The Index reports that the world is furthest behind on SDG 5 (Gender Equality), SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), SDG 13 (Climate Action) and gender equality issues related to gender data and public finance, under SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).
