Does gender equality really exist and what does it mean?
Gender equality implies that men and women must receive the same rights, benefits, equal opportunities, the same sentences and be treated with the same respect in all aspects of daily life: work, health, education. The principle of equality and non-discrimination on the reason of sex is an obligation of general international law that binds all nations and, given its fundamental nature, is always established as a principle that should inspire the rest of the fundamental rights.
Some progress has been made in recent decades: more girls are able to go to school, and fewer girls are forced into early marriage; there are more women in parliamentary and leadership positions, and laws are being reformed to promote gender equality.
But unfortunately even today, there is no full equality; there are many countries that mistreat girls and women.
That is why all possible help is necessary so that they can have a dignified life!
