A quantum leap for gender equality: For a better future of work for all

 
 

This report is the culmination of the extensive and often ground-breaking work undertaken in the ILO’s Women at Work Centenary Initiative. It is closely aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The report highlights key gender gaps and obstacles to decent work for women. It explores the structural barriers, including unpaid care work, that shape the nature and extent of women’s engagement in paid employment, and examines how laws, policies and practices in certain countries have addressed them. The report also outlines the measures that can and should be taken to seize the opportunities presented by the changing world of work.
