Ensure equality of all genders and gender-sensitive approaches in all areas of life of a young person.

Gender-based discrimination still affects many young people, especially young women. Equal opportunities and access to rights need to be ensured for young people of all genders including non-binary and LGBTQI+ young people.

  • Achieve universal awareness of gender-based inequality and discrimination, particularly in the media.
  • End gender-based violence by addressing and tackling it effectively in all its forms.
  • Eliminate stereotypical gender roles and embrace diverse gender identities in education systems, family life, the workplace, and other areas of life.
  • End gender-based structural discrimination in the labour market and ensure equal rights, access and opportunities.
  • Ensure equal pay for equal work and the equal sharing of the responsibilities of care work.
  • Ensure equal access to formal and non-formal education, and that the design of education systems follows gender-sensitive approaches.
