The need for gender equality By: Jamie Gomez
Why is gender equality a global issue? Although gender equality is a global issue, it is made worse by poverty and is a key factor in the persistence of poverty. When men and women do not have equal access to resources or equal opportunities to take part in decision making, there are direct economic and social costs. Globally, women have fewer opportunities for economic participation than men, less access to basic and higher education, greater health and safety risks, and less political representation
What is gender equality and why do we need it Gender equality is when people of all genders have equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities. Everyone is affected by gender inequality, women, men, trans and gender diverse people as well as families and their children. This issue impacts people of all ages and background. We need gender equality urgently. Gender equality prevents violence against women and girls. It's essential for economic prosperity. Societies that value women and men are safer and healthier. Gender equality is a human right. It's something that is needed in the world. Everyone benefits from gender equality.
