Gender Needs Assessment for Kumasi, Ghana
In September 2000, Ghana was one of 189 signatories to adopt the United Nations Millennium Declaration on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This gender needs assessment focuses on the Millennium Development Goal of gender equality and women‟s empowerment (MDG 3), and whether Kumasi, Ghana‟s second largest city, can achieve both objectives by 2015. MDG 3 specifically seeks to eliminate gender inequality at all levels of education by
2015, but gender equality and women‟s empowerment entail much more. They require equality of economic opportunity, equitable representation in political bodies, access to reproductive rights and freedom from gender-based violence.
