Gender Equality

Gender equality refers to equal rights, opportunities and treatment of women and men, girls and boys in all spheres of life. It asserts that people’s rights; responsibilities; social status; and access to, and control over, resources do not depend on whether they are born male or female. This does not mean, however, that women and men are the same or must become the same. Gender equality implies that both women and men are free to develop their personal abilities and make choices without the limitations set by stereotypes or prejudices about gender roles or the characteristics of women and men.
