In September 2015, the United Nations approved the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which contains 17 goals. Issue 5 is “achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls.” All signatory governments have stated that achieving the fifth goal will contribute decisively to the progress of the other goals.

Goal 5 sets six milestones in very different areas; from preventing any form of gender-based violence to ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health. At 50a50 we support all goals, but we focus our mission on achieving the following goal:

  • 50a50. Ensuring the full and effective participation of women, and equal leadership opportunities in all areas of decision-making in political, economic and public life

To achieve this goal and to implement the 2030 Agenda, governments are asking for the support of businesses and civil society as a whole. That is why this association was born, with the aim of extending support for SDG 5 to as many people, companies and institutions as possible.

Entering the economic and business institutions representing Catalonia is a women’s right contemplated by the Equality Law (17/2015) approved by the Parliament of Catalonia, and it is an obligation that all organizations must fulfill in order to be representative, democratic and have the right to access public subsidies.
