‘Mixed picture' of women's progress shows need to better harness synergies

– UN official

UN News Centre

 

It is ... essential to harness the synergies between gender equality, women's rights and empowerment with sustainable development in its three dimensions – economic, social, and environmental,” Lakshmi Puri, Deputy Executive Director of the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN-Women) said as she opened a high-level forum at UN Headquarters in New York this morning.

The two-day event, organized ahead of the fifty-eighth session of the UN Commission of the Status of Women (CSW) next year, is looking at challenges and achievements in meeting the targets for women's and girls' progress in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which call for the reduction of extreme poverty and other global ills by the deadline of 2015.

MDG number 3 is specifically targeted to gender equality and the empowerment of women, but all eight Goals have been important for that purpose, Ms. Puri said.
