O momento é sempre oportuno para lembrar que é importante considerar a questão da igualdade de género «em tudo». Nesta linha, não será por acaso que no Indice de Desenvolvimento Humano a questão da Desigualdade de Género é considerada, como se pode ver no Human Development Report 2013, na imagem acima..
Contudo, como medir é um trabalho sempre a melhorar. No passado dia 19 teve lugar a 58th CSW: Conversation on measuring Gender disparities (imagem abaixo). Subjacente à agenda (destaque nosso):
«No country has achieved gender equality in human development, irrespective of the dimensions that one looks at. In 2010, the Human Development Report (HDR) introduced the Gender Inequality Index to highlight how limited attention to key issues like maternal deaths, adolescent births and limited female participation in higher education, the labour market and political decision-making strangle the development potential of countries. In the 2014 HDR, the Human Development Report Office will introduce a sex-disaggregated Human Development Index (HDI) to provide evidence needed to promote gender equality in basic human capabilities. This side event aims to engage the gender equality community in a discussion on these measures and their policy relevance for the Post-2015 development agenda».
Ainda: na « 58th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW58) - the annual gathering of States to address critical issues related to gender equality and women’s rights - is focusing on “Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls”. Taking place at United Nations Headquarters in New York, from 10-21 March 2014, Member States, UN entities and accredited NGOs from around the world will take stock of progress and remaining challenges towards meeting the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). +
