Labour market inclusion

Increasing the labour market participation rate and the value of work traditionally done by women

Women20 stresses the importance of reconfirming the Brisbane agreement on reducing the gender gap by 25 per cent by 2025 and calls on the G20 for the effective implementation of ‘25 by 25’. In regards to the globally-agreed Agenda 2030 with special focus on SDG 5, ‘Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls’, it is crucial to think ahead and to focus on how women participate in the labour market.

Women20 urges the G20 to:

  • Achieve ‘25 by 25’ by defining milestones and indicators, as well as committing to binding monitoring standards of its implementation in all G20 states
  • Narrow and finally close the gender pay gap in order to significantly increase  global growth and reduce poverty and inequality
  • Appoint nationally-determined gender targets for the corporate advisory boards of joint-stock companies
  • Promote work-life-balance for women and men by encouraging equal share of paid work and unpaid care and domestic work
  • Ensure sustainable livelihood for employed and self-employed women
  • Increase the value of care work and domestic work traditionally done by women by including it in the GDP measurements
