The persistence of gender inequality is unacceptable and impedes human and economic development. Unequal access to services, markets and rights between the sexes represents a denial of human rights, and imposes unnecessary costs on families, communities and nation states. The persistence and pervasiveness of violence against women is a particularly repulsive expression of unequal gender relations.
Aurecon believes that gender equality is a vital development objective in its own right, and is critical to the achievement of other development goals.
