SDG 5 coordination

WO=MEN Dutch Gender Platform defends gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls in all their gender identities (SDG 5) on behalf of the Netherlands. Ultimately, gender equality is a right, not a luxury. WO=MEN coordinates the implementation of this development goal in national and international policy in the Netherlands.

 

For us SDG 5 is a goal as well as a means to strengthen people, organisations, companies and education and knowledge institutes so that gender equality and women's rights can flourish nationally and internationally. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the successors to the Millennium Development Goals, aim to put an end to poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.


In 2019, we were focusing on, for example, the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage and the new convention to combat violence and harassment in the workplace.
