Sustainable Development Goal 5 is about gender equality. This goal calls for gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls globally. According to the UN, “gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but rather a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world”. Giving equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes to women and girls can usher in sustainable economies which in turn benefit humanity and societies. In Tanzania our focus on women emancipation and empowerment is more theoretically successful than it is practically. This is the reason why we still have gender-based violence against women, discrimination by sex and also gruesome murder of women and girls in addition to injustices that are endemic in society today.
