New web dossier: African women and the Sustainable Development Goals

SDG Gender equality

Each year on 8 March special attention is paid to the position of women worldwide. This year’s UN theme for International Women's Day is directly related to the Sustainable Development Goals. Gender equality is an important factor in all of these targets. It is also an important issue for the African Union, that recently declared 2016 the ‘African Year of Human Rights, with a particular focus on the Rights of Women’. In this context, the ASCL Library has compiled a web dossier containing titles from the catalogue published after 2011, and paying attention to all the themes represented in the Sustainable Development Goals.
