This national report is designed to trace the progress of women in various fields, monitoring achievements, and highlighting gaps and failures, as well as analyzing indicators, recommending measures, and measuring levels of achievements in the implementation of plans and strategies. The main themes were selected according to national priorities dictated by each stage: Legal Protection for Women's Right to Access Justice, Participation, the Economic Empowerment of Jordanian Women, Equality, Citizenship and Decision-Making in Public Life. The conclusions of this report confirm that a much smaller effort was exerted at the level of providing information, data and the provision of services in the area of providing justice and facilitating ways of achieving it. The lack of knowledge about available services among women, whether provided by civil society organizations or government institutions, affects women's ability to access justice negatively. Regarding the economic participation the Policies and plans that targeted empowering women economically show that the result of these policies was weak and limited. Difficulty of women’s access to job opportunities in the private sector and inequitable pay between the sexes, lack of supporting services to working women, including childcare Facilities, poor matching between education outputs and skills required in the labor market and the traditional social standards that contribute to directing females towards certain professions. The report proposed general recommendations and directions that include quick solutions to deal with the main highlighted challenges.
