Women and the MDGs Fact Sheet

Download the Fact sheet

In September 2000, the leaders of the world committed to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to end poverty and make development a reality for all people by 2015.

The world now stands at the halfway point towards making the Goals a reality, but results have been uneven.

To ensure the world realizes its potential to make poverty history, significant progress must be made to ensure gender equity.

Women disproportionately suffer from hunger, disease, environmental degradation and impoverishment. As a result, poverty remains stubbornly “feminized”, with women accounting for a vast percentage of the world’s absolute poor.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, it is important to highlight the interconnectedness of women’s issues to all of the Millennium Development Goals.
