What bigger, bolder commitments are needed to reach gender equality?

2020 marks 25 years since 189 countries committed to the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most progressive blueprint ever for advancing women’s rights. 

Changemakers from around the world are ready to tackle the unfinished business of creating a gender-equal world, including through UN Women’s Generation Equality campaign, which is working to achieve gender equality in this generation.

Decision-makers should seize the #GenerationEquality spotlight to make bigger, bolder, and more accountable commitments towards advancing gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

But what commitments would make the biggest impact?
That’s where you come in.

EM2030: Bending the Curve Towards Gender Equality by 2030

This report analyzes five key gender equality targets: access to contraception, girls’ education, political leadership, workplace equality laws, and safety. The report found that more than a third of countries have been moving slowly — or even in the wrong direction — on at least four of these five issues over the past two decades.

But the report also offers reason for optimism. Research found that many countries have made rapid progress on the five issues studied.

What is happening with CSW64?

You may have already heard that due to ongoing concerns regarding the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, the 64th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW64) will convene on Monday 9 March for a procedural meeting only. No general debate will take place, and all side events in conjunction with CSW64 have been cancelled. In line with this decision, and to protect the health of our fellow advocates and partners, Women Deliver has also cancelled all in-person CSW64 events.

Despite these changes, progress on gender equality cannot wait.

Our global community of partners, spanning sectors and geographies, will continue to convene through bilateral meetings, phone and Skype calls, webinars, and other digital activations to seize the spotlight on Generation Equality and build momentum for a gender-equal world.

Women Deliver will be adding key virtual events to our website as they are confirmed.
