Generation Equality: Realizing women’s rights for an equal future
Imagine a world where all people have equal rights and opportunities. Women and girls are not afraid of walking home late at night, and men and boys are not trapped in oppressive masculinities. In this world, gender equality is the norm. Men and women get paid equally for work of equal value and share the care work at home.
Imagine equality in political leadership and corporate boardrooms and factory floors. Women have equal say in decisions that affect their lives, their bodies, their policies, and their environment, from villages to cities.
Let’s make this a reality. Join UN Women’s Generation Equality campaign to accelerate gender equality actions and mark the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most visionary agenda for women’s rights and empowerment everywhere.
On 29-30 October 2019, the Beijing+25 Regional Review Meeting brought together 850 participants, including government officials, civil society representatives and international organizations from Europe, North America, the Caucasus, and Central Asia, to demand action around women`s and girls` human rights and to push for commitments in achieving gender equality.
On 28 October 2019, over 400 feminists, women`s and LGBTI rights activists came together in Geneva to call for urgent action on gender equality, ahead of the Beijing+25 Regional Review Meeting. They addressed the structural barriers to achieving gender equality and realizing women`s and girl`s rights, and urged for renewed commitments.
