Equal Measures 2030 Data Hub

Gender Advocates Data Hub

Welcome to Equal Measures 2030’s Gender Advocates Data Hub: the go-to resource for data, visualizations and impact stories showcasing data-driven advocacy on gender equality issues across the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Explore the state of gender equality across 129 countries covering 95% of the world’s girls and women through our 2019 SDG Gender Index and our new 2020 Projections on five key gender equality issues taken from the Index.

Bending the Curve Towards Gender Equality by 2030

Our new research report finds that half of countries studied (67 out of 129 countries) – home to 2.1 billion girls and women – won’t achieve any of five key gender equality targets by 2030 if their current pace continues. The report covers: access to contraception, girls’ education, political leadership, workplace equality laws, and safety. However, the report also finds that if all countries matched the pace of fast-moving countries over the next decade, nearly three quarters of the world’s girls’ and women could instead live in countries that would reach four or even all five of these gender equality targets by the year 2030.

Open Letter from EM2030 Leaders

An Open Letter signed by leaders from EM2030 partner organizations, released alongside the Bending the Curve Towards Gender Equality by 2030 report, called on world leaders to use this data to hold themselves to account for the gender equality promises they made in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and The Beijing Platform for Action (the ambitious blueprint for women’s rights that is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year).  Released ahead of International Women’s Day, the letter urged governments to prioritize gender equality, make coordinated and targeted investments, and bring feminist movements, women-focused organizations, and girls and women themselves to the decision-making table.

The 2019 SDG Gender Index

The Bending the Curve projections build on the 2019 SDG Gender Index, which scored and ranked 129 countries on 51 key gender equality issues.  The Index measured gender equality at one point in time (most recent year possible), where Bending the Curve looks at the speed of progress on 5 of the issues from the Index over the past 10 to 20 years in order to forecast the future.  Explore the 2019 SDG Gender Index data below.
