Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

Target 5.c: Adopt and strengthen sound policies and enforceable legislation for the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls at all levels

UNCITRAL standards are gender-neutral. However, some standards may be of particular relevance to achieving gender equality, such as those aimed at reducing the legal obstacles faced by micro and small enterprises during their life cycle, since many such businesses are run by women. In addition, UNCITRAL work in the area of e-commerce contributes to diversification and the achievement of more inclusive access to economic, educational and other opportunities and thus to the reduction or removal of obstacles that women and girls often face with regard to access to education, business opportunities, credit and justice.
