United Nations Sustainable Develolment Goal (SDG) 5
Empowering women and girls to reach their full potential requires that they have equal opportunities to those of men and boys. This means eliminating all forms of discrimination and violence against them, including violence by intimate partners, sexual violence and harmful practices, such as child marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM). Ensuring that women have better access to paid employment, sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, and real decision-making power in public and private spheres will further ensure that development is equitable and sustainable.
On this day where we celebrate women’s day, let’s be inspired and empowered by the SDG 5 to seek inclusion and enhanced protection for women.
Join YPN to celebrate international women’s day! YPN wishes all women of the world a happy day celebration.
