    Great report! Thank you UN Women! The summary PDF is great: http://progress.unwomen.org/en/2015/pdf/SUMMARY.pdf

    It's helpful to see what is happening and also learn of the 10 PRIORITIES FOR PUBLIC ACTION we can all work on:

    1. CREATE MORE AND BETTER JOBS FOR WOMEN 
    2. REDUCE OCCUPATIONAL SEGREGATION AND GENDER PAY GAPS
    3. STRENGTHEN WOMEN’S INCOME SECURITY THROUGHOUT THE LIFE CYCLE 
    4. RECOGNIZE, REDUCE AND REDISTRIBUTE UNPAID CARE AND DOMESTIC WORK 
    5. INVEST IN GENDERRESPONSIVE SOCIAL SERVICES
    6. MAXIMIZE RESOURCES FOR THE ACHIEVEMENT OF SUBSTANTIVE EQUALITY
    7. SUPPORT WOMEN’S ORGANIZATIONS TO CLAIM RIGHTS AND SHAPE POLICY AGENDAS AT ALL LEVELS
    8. CREATE AN ENABLING GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT FOR THE REALIZATION OF WOMEN’S RIGHTS
    9. USE HUMAN RIGHTS STANDARDS TO SHAPE POLICIES AND CATALYSE CHANGE
    10. GENERATE EVIDENCE TO ASSESS PROGRESS N WOMEN’S O ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL RIGHTS

    It would be great to have suggestions on how we can, individually, help bring progress to each priority. 

    Personally, my work falls under priority #2. Let me know if your working on the same.
