Goal 5: 4. Main Eurostat Indicators

Key trends in "Gender Equality” in the European Union show the following evidence (Eurostat Report, pp. 115 and ss):

 

  • One in three women in Europe has experienced physical and/or sexual violence since the age of 15;
  • The gender gap in early school leavers is narrowing;
  • Although more women than men have completed tertiary education, the employment rate of female graduates is lower;
  • Gender equality has improved slightly in the labour market, but many women remain inactive due to caring responsibilities;
  • The gender pay gap has decreased slightly in recent years;
  • The gender employment gap has stagnated over the past few years, and women are still less likely to be employed than men;
  • Caring responsibilities were by far the main reason for inactivity among women;
  • The share of seats held by women in national parliaments has increased steadily since 2003;
  • In 2018, a quarter of the board members of the largest listed companies were women.

 

Goal 5’s attainment is monitored through the following main indicators: Source: EU SDG Indicator set 2020:
