Economic development- Sustainable development greatly depends on ending discrimination towards women and providing equal employment opportunities for both the male and female workforce which intern costs the economy
Poverty eradication - by discriminating against women, the economies suffer, their families are stuck in poverty cycles through the generations. Poverty in society can be eradicated by providing equal opportunities for women.
Better Healthcare - due to lack of civil education, ignorance, and low-income status, women receive worse medical care compared to males. This level of inequality also extended to medical research as diseases affecting women are less likely to be researched. Equality can change healthcare inequality hence impacting society positively.
