Peaceful and inclusive societies uphold the rule of law and ensure equal access to justice. We must advance peace and inclusion by backing the engagement of women in all aspects of peace negotiations, peacebuilding and reconstruction for inclusive societies. #globalgoals #Planet5050

Ending hunger means that all women can consume enough food with adequate nutrients. Inequities in food consumption stand in contrast to women’s significant role in agricultural production. They comprise an important share of the agricultural labour force in developing countries, yet their potential contribution to food security remains constrained by unequal access to land and other productive assets. #globalgoals #Planet5050

Education is a fundamental right. All developing regions of the world have achieved—or almost achieved—equal enrolment of boys and girls in primary school. This is an historic accomplishment, but far from complete. #globalgoals #Planet5050

"I wanted to be a doctor, a soldier, a politician and a dancer. And I became all of them when I started working in Polio Plus, Movement Against Disability. I don’t wear a white coat, but I help others every day; I am not a soldier, but I fight for the rights of persons with disabilities; I am not a politician, but I advocate; and I am not a dancer, but I give public talks and appear on media." - Elena Kochoska.

There can be no sustainable development without women's full participation in all spheres of life. This in turn means that we must recognize and value women’s unpaid care work. Learn more about women and the #globalgoals: http://unwo.men/xSKC30dnwdY

Gender equality needs political commitment AND resources. Last year, funding for UN Women was short from what had been promised. Learn what we have achieved nonetheless: http://annualreport.unwomen.org/en/2017 #HLPF
