9780821374467: Equality for Women: Where Do We Stand on Millennium Development Goal 3?

Upon signing the Millennium Declaration in 2000, the international community committed itself to eight development goals with timebound targets and measurable indicators. The third of these eight goals was to 'promote gender equality and empower women'. The third Millennium Development Goal (MDG3) in the Millennium Declaration has spurred national and international efforts to improve women's situation around the globe. 'Equality for Women: Where Do We Stand on Millennium Goal 3?' tracks countries' progress with implementing and financing MDG3 by examining national experiences and successes with policies and programs. It also contains an assessment of the effectiveness of different strategies in achieving MDG3 and the financial requirements needed to attain MDG3 by 2015. 'Equality for Women' will be useful for gender analysts, policy makers, government officials, and others working to promote gender mainstreaming.

Review:

"Expanding women's capabilities and active agency central to the economic and social development process. Equality for Women makes an important contribution to these issues through a fuller assessment of the achievements and failures so far and through a searching investigation of the challenges that remain in enhancing women's well-being and agency. This book is a very welcome addition to the gender and development literature." --Dr. Amartya Sen, Nobel Laureate in Economic Science, Department of Economics, Harvard University

"Equality for Women is a must-read for anyone who cares about gender equality, democracy, and sustainable growth It fuels and strengthens my conviction that the political and economic empowerment of women is not only smart economics, but is also an essential contribution to the realization of human rights and to the enhancement of the effectiveness of aid. At the halfway point on the road towards the Millennium Development Goals and in view of the forthcoming Financing for Development Review, this book comes at the right time. It is a strong reminder that gender equality and women's empowerment will remain illusive without targeted interventions and investments facilitating changes in social norms, existing laws institutions, policies. Let's face it: women are an estimated 70 percent of the 1 billion people living in extreme poverty; 19 countries are seriously off-track in achieving gender parity in primary and secondary school enrollment by 2015; and an estimated financial gap of $13 billion yearly is needed to meet the targets of MDG3. We made commitments, now we need to live up to them." --Heidemarie Wieczoreck-Zeul, Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Germany
