Blum RW, Boydon J, Erulkar A, Kabiru C & Wilopo S (June 2019) ‘Achieving Gender Equality Requires Placing Adolescents at the Center. Journal of Adolescent Health (June 2019) Volume 64, Issue 6, Pages 691–693. Authors write: To achieve gender equality, we need to redefine the problem as a “gender,” not women’s and girls’, issue. And the evidence is strong that the “…links between gender equality and life satisfaction among adults suggest that men as well as women benefit from high level of societal gender equality. Moreover, an abundance of literature shows that males as well as females benefit from a more socially supportive climate’. The time to act is now, for with the SDGs, there is opportunity to focus global attention on the priority of adolescents in achieving gender equality.
