"Pour structurer cette analyse [pdf] - written in French with many references in English -, nous avons sélectionné quelque soixante sources représentatives parmi plusieurs centaines d'autres. Nous en proposons des citations référencées que nous avons organisées en cinq chapitres illustrant les cinq ODD analysés en permanence par la Fondation Millennia2025 Femmes et Innovation résumées sous les titres Santé, Education, Egalité, Justice et Leadership économique".
"De toutes ces études, nous devons retenir que l'égalité est bien un rêve en marche mais que les pas franchis sont fragiles, requérant d'intenses efforts, face aux obstacles du patriarcat, du machisme, de l'obscurantisme, des traditions de domination, de la volonté de pouvoir, des violences, de l'esclavage et des guerres.
Pour tous ces domaines, des pistes éclaireraient les décideurs s'ils comprenaient que travailler sur des statistiques genrées, dans tous les domaines, rendrait justice aux fractures de genre : alors seulement des solutions appropriées pourraient être mise en œuvre. Il s'agit d'une volonté politique à activer, d'un nouveau paradigme basé sur un vaste changement de mentalités".
