A Roadmap for Action

The survey reveals that the public expects leaders to act now to turn the tide. Published ahead of this year’s Generation Equality Forum and as the world works to build a healthier, more equitable future, the study's findings offer a roadmap of priority actions that governments, the private sector, and civil society should focus on to accelerate progress on gender equality.



  • Making bigger, bolder commitments and taking meaningful action.
  • Matching commitments with financing and accountability mechanisms.
  • Developing policies and programs that foster collaboration across Generation Equality Action Coalitions.
  • Addressing harmful gender norms through advocacy and public communications campaigns.
  • Eliminating discriminatory laws and enact policies that respect the rights of girls and women, in all their diversity, and drive gender equality.
  • Investing in gender-disaggregated data collection and analysis to inform policies.
  • Applying a gender lens to the COVID-19 response and recovery plans reflective of overlapping inequalities, such as race and poverty.
  • Ensuring that investments, policies, and programs equally benefit all girls and women, including young people and people from underrepresented groups.
