POWER SHIFT: Gender equality from the ground up! Launch of global report on the status of gender equality (SDG5) through the lens of community-based data with lessons learned and key demands from feminist organisations around the world
Wednesday, 15 July 2020
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Virtual (New York time)
Women2030 coalition (WECF, APWLD, GFC, WEP)
Since the implementation of Agenda2030, the women2030 coalition partners have gathered community-based data and published shadow reports to identify gaps between policies and lived realities on the ground, in 35 countries in 4 regions. The women2030 coalition launches their global report which outlines the structural barriers and constraints faced in SDG implementation, and showcases opportunities and best practices drawn from the grassroots. Feminist activists who authored the report will share their recommendations on how to ensure a gender-just and transformative Agenda2030 in key priority areas of climate and environmental justice, redistributive and economic justice, political participation, GBV, and gender stereotypes.
