The 2015 Gender Chart shows that while progress has been made in a number of the gender dimensions of the MDGs, such as in education, where the gender gap in youth literacy has narrowed, and in maternal mortality, which has declined by nearly 44 per cent since 1990, more needs to be done. Women and girls need to be at the centre of any development imperative. And now, with Member States jointly adopting the ambitious 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the aim is clear: Pick up where the MDGS left off, and ensure a comprehensive agenda that fully addresses gender equality and women’s empowerment head on.
