Abstract

Gender equality in the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development is an issue that is given great importance. The Sustainable Development Goals treat gender issues in a sensitive manner and build expectations that gender equality will be considered as a priority in the new global sustainable development policy of countries. In the Republic of North Macedonia, in general, national strategic documents and policies pay attention to gender equality and incorporate the gender dimension which is also reflected in the index of gender equality, which is 64.5 points of a possible 100. This fact leads to the general review that gender inequality is still present and it manifests in various dimensions especially in rural areas. This paper is methodologically based on a review and analysis of the legal framework in the field of gender equality, rural development and agriculture; data from recent research and analysis related to the SDGs; consultations with local civil society organizations as well as with women from rural areas. Based on the research that is done, the main conclusions lead to the direction that the biggest gender gap is noticed in employment, wages, as well as in women’s participation in social and political life. These gaps are especially visible in local communities in the country. Also, to the conclusion could be added that the contribution to the fifth goal of sustainable development – Enforce Gender Equality is generally provided by the state through legal legislation and strategic documents, but what is missing is the real and equal progress and contribution to achieving the goal in everyday social life, especially in rural areas.
