Call to Action:
We are calling for the national governments, businesses and civil society to address time use inequalities that continue to organize daily life and the economy as a whole.
With this panel we wish to promote engagement and cross-sectorial partnerships with the private sector, civil society and local governments to implement effective strategies to focus on providing access to decent employment, social security networks that absorb care needs, and to remove gender stereotypes within households.
Achieving real gender equality by 2030 requires all sectors of society to work together in forging partnerships and implementing systemic changes – economic, political and social – to collectively commit to effectively advancing women’s human rights.
