Despite years of policies to promote gender equality in the workplace, no country has managed to make it a reality.

That's one of the findings of a report launched at the second Barbershop Conference, held in July at UN Headquarters in New York.

The initiative was created in 2015 by Iceland and Suriname and supports UN Women's "HeforShe" movement to achieve gender equality within our lifetime.
