Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality

From EcoliseWiki

Definition

"SDG 5 'gender equality' is also characterised by progress in several areas, in particular when it comes to women's employment and leadership. The gender gaps for early leavers from education and training and employment have narrowed, and the proportion of women in both national parliaments and in senior management positions of the largest listed companies has increased. In contrast, significant differences in the nonparticipation of women and men in the labour market remain. The gender gap observed for inactivity due to caring responsibilities has increased considerably, and the gender gaps in tertiary educational attainment and in the employment rate of recent graduates have also been widening, while the gender pay gap has remained almost unchanged since 2010."

Community-led Initiatives and SDG1

Gender Balance Most initiatives (60%) reported approximately equal gender ratios, whereas some initiatives are male-dominated and very few are female-dominated (only 10%). 42.9% of the initiatives have more male than female users. [1]

"To examine the gender balance in our sample, we collected data on the gender ratio among the founding members, among participants 5 years ago, among participants in the present and among strategic decision-makers for the 63 initiatives in our sample (Figure 21)." [1]

"We also investigated the gender balance in the decision-making process and how this has changed over time. As already shown in Figure 21 of Section 4.3 of this Deliverable, most initiatives (60%) reported approximately equal gender ratios, whereas some initiatives are male-dominated and very few are female-dominated (only 10%). Looking back five years, 33.3% of CBIs said this equilibrium has changed over time while for 66.7% it has not." [1]
