Progress of World's Women: Fact Sheets


These fact sheets accompany the UN-Women’s flagship report, Progress of the World’s Women 2015-2016: Transforming Economies, Realizing Rights. The report brings together human rights and economic policymaking. The global fact sheet facilitates comparison of regional data with the global situation. The regional fact sheets include information on work (e.g., gender gaps in labor participation, unequal pay, opportunity cost of unpaid labor), social policy (e.g., social protection, social services, health care), and macroeconomic policy. A topical fact sheet on health services for women is also available.
