Shows support for a stand-alone goal in the post-2015 development agenda on gender equality, women's rights, and women's empowerment and for goals that address violence against women, the need to expand women's choices and equal opportunities, and the need to ensure that all women have a voice within households and in public and private decision-making. Urges the United States to participate in the Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up For Gender Equality Campaign and to ratify the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women to further the commitment to gender equality.
