Progress of the World’s Women 2015-2016: Transforming Economies, Realizing Rights

Authors/editor(s): UN Women

UN Women’s flagship report, shows that, all too often, women’s economic and social rights are held back, because they are forced to fit into a “man’s world.” But, it is possible to move beyond the status quo, to picture a world where economies are built with women’s rights at their heart.

It is being published as the international community comes together to define a transformative post-2015 development agenda, and coincides with the 20th anniversary commemoration of the landmark Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China which set out a comprehensive agenda to advance gender equality.
