Dear Colleagues,

A target on unpaid care work has now been included in the final outcome
document of the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals,
reflecting growing awareness of its centrality to women's rights, poverty
and development.  The Gender and Development Network sees this as a crucial
step in the pursuit of gender equality and inclusive, sustainable

In all countries, recognising, reducing and redistributing unpaid care work
can have a major positive impact on achieving gender equality, realising
women's rights and meeting other development goals, by freeing up women's
time and boosting their social status, earning power and political

Our new report provides evidence of the many benefits of tackling women's
disproportionate burden of unpaid care work, and suggests practical
proposals for implementation and indicators for measuring progress. While
we suggest that the current wording of the proposed target could be
improved, the recognition of unpaid care in this global development agenda
would in itself represent an important advance, and therefore our main
concern is to preserve its inclusion.

We call on the UN Secretary General and Member States to ensure that this
major breakthrough is upheld and that the final Sustainable Development
Goals include a strong target on unpaid care.

The report is attached and available on our website here.
