INTRODUCING 50a50

In September 2015, the countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Goal 5 is “ACHIEVE GENDER EQUALITY AND EMPOWER ALL WOMEN AND GIRLS“.  The signatory governments have all declared that the attainment of Goal 5 will contribute decisively to the progress of the other Goals.

Goal 5 includes targets in very different areas – from eliminating all forms of violence to guaranteeing universal access to women’s sexual and reproductive health. On our MANIFEST we acknowledge all the targets, however our focus in reaching 50-50 is to:

  • 50a50. Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life.

To obtain this goal and to implement the 2030 Agenda, the governments request the support by businesses and the whole of civil society. It is for this reason our Association is founded, to make the support of Goal 5 available to as many people, companies and institutions as possible.

Participating in the economic institutions and their representative management in Catalonia is a women’s right, as identified in the Law of Equality (17/2015) approved by the Parliament of Catalonia.  It is an obligation that all Catalan organizations must meet, to be representative, democratic and to access public subsidies.
