Progress indicators basically try to measure the progress of each activity of your project. For example, if one of the project activities has been organizing a training workshop on human rights, then the number of women and men participating in it is an indicator for organizing the workshop.

Results indicators measure the success of the result of an activity. Such an indicator usually comes up after the activity has been organized. From the same example above, the number of women who have gained an understanding of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 is a results indicator because it signifies the indicator of a result achieved from this activity.
