There has been progress in achieving gender equality and women's empowerment around the world - but the pace is too slow in many regions. Sub-Saharan Africa has the lowest levels of achievement, primarily because of a devastating combination of national poverty, conflict and the effects of HIV/AIDS. These are among the findings of Progress of the World's Women 2002, Gender Equality and the Millennium Development Goals, the second edition of a biennial publication by the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) that was first produced in 2000 to track and measure the world's commitment to gender equality.
