Inmost countries showed a decline in maternal mortality rates, but this is one of the goals with least progress. The law of sex equality struck at the outdated and deteriorating infrastructure of social reproduction by disapproving of gender stereotypes based on traditional roles in the family, but it did not mandate the creation of an alternative infrastructure.

This long term separation and the worry it gives rise to can be incredibly taxing. Despite economic struggles in developing countries, the United Nations is still trying to promote gender equality, as well as help create a sustainable living environment is all its nations.

Personal interviews and anecdotal evidence reveal that women suffer from a significant emotional harm as their loved one embarks on an often dangerous journey. Such examples reveal the sustained, and hidden, institutional sexism in education that both serves to exclude young women from reaching their full potential and eventually affects their future earning potential.
