The Gender Snapshot 2022

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Sep 15, 2022 | UN DESA

This UN DESA publication presents the latest evidence across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals, highlighting that, at the current pace of progress, SDG 5 – achieving gender equality – will not be met by anywhere near 2030. COVID-19 and the backlash against women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights are further diminishing the outlook for gender equality. At the current rate of progress, the report estimates that it will take up to 286 years to close gaps in legal protection and remove discriminatory laws, 140 years for women to be represented equally in positions of power and leadership in the workplace, and at least 40 years to achieve equal representation in national parliaments. Only 48 per cent of data required to track progress on SDG 5 are currently available, rendering women and girls effectively invisible. The report showcases that cooperation, partnerships and investments in the gender equality agenda, including through increased global and national funding are essential to correct the course and place gender equality back on track.
