Goal 5 seeks to eliminate all forms of discrimination, violence and harmful practices against women and girls everywhere. It also aims to empower women by recognizing and valuing unpaid care and domestic work through the provision of public services, infrastructure and social protection policies as well as ensuring women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership. Finally, this goal calls for the assurance of universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights.

World Renew is committed to gender justice, meaning that all children and adults have equal access to community resources and equal opportunity to benefit from community projects, to make community decisions, and to develop their talents, regardless of gender. This also means working against domestic violence, female genital mutilation, honor killings, sex trafficking, victimization of widows and single mothers, and unhealthy expressions of masculinity.
