Of the 193 member countries of the United Nations, 189 are State Parties to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (as of December 2019). In many parts of the world significant progress on gender equality has been achieved. However, despite the tremendous progress in access to education made over the past 20 years, girls are still more likely than boys to never set foot in a classroom. Discriminatory laws and policies, social norms, gender-based stereotypes and violence, and a rising conservative agenda are still compromising efforts to achieve gender equality. The advancement of gender equality through education, the sciences, culture, information and communication, at the heart of UNESCO’s mandate, aims to equip both women and men to address the challenges of sustainable development in a fast-changing world.
