Gender equality means equal access to resources and opportunities regardless of gender, including economic participation and decision-making; and the state of valuing different behaviors, aspirations and needs equally, regardless of gender. Achieving gender equality also requires eliminating harmful practices against women and girls, including sex trafficking, wartime sexual violence, gender wage gap, and other oppression tactics. It is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world, as stated in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
But what is the difference between gender equality, gender equity and gender neutrality? Why are these movements still important in today’s societies?
