Her Goals: Our Future
A generation of healthy, educated, safe, and empowered girls and women can transform the future of humanity.
The time is now. We know that girls and women are at the heart of all 17 sustainable development goals. It’s up to us to make these goals a reality, and to do so, we must put girls and women at the center of the global conversation.
At the core, the global goals are about people. Girls and women are forces of change for their communities, their countries, and the world. By empowering them, we know that not only can we achieve Goal 5 (gender equality), but we can achieve progress on all 17 goals, and achieve a healthier, more prosperous, and more sustainable world for all by 2030.
