UN Development Goal:

Gender Equality

Gender equality continues to act as a barrier for women in the developing world leading to a lack of access to services and the deprivation of basic human rights.

According to UN data, an estimated 21% of women ages 20-24 years old reported that they had been involved in a child marriage before the age of 18. In 2017 alone, 1 in 3 girls were subjected to FGM. Women in developing countries have reported to spend over three times as many hours in unpaid domestic work than men.
