About Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030):

EM2030 is a collaboration of national, regional, and global leaders from feminist networks, civil society, international development and the private sector. We connect data and evidence with advocacy and action on gender equality, to transform the lives of women and girls and realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It is more than 25 years since 189 countries committed to the Beijing Platform for Action by advancing women’srights. And we have less than 10 years until the 2030 deadline for achieving the SDGs and their promise of gender equality.

But Equal Measures 2030’s SDG Gender Index shows that not a single country has yet achieved gender equality.
