By 2030, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5: Gender Equality aims to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. SDG 5 in particular often overlaps with the other Global Goals, as it addresses gender inequalities present in many parts of society – including equal access to education, work, healthcare, and political representation. Currently, women make up more than 51% of the U.S. population but are only 34% of STEM degree recipients, 63% of minimum wage workers, and just over 1/4 of members of Congress. The United Nations has defined 9 Targets and 14 Indicators to track progress towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goal of Gender Equality by 2030. The data below takes a look at key indicators in the U.S. related to the gender pay gap, women in Congress, paid family leave, and more through the lens of government and social sector data.
