The year 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 #GenerationEquality campaign, which is working to achieve gender equality in this generation.
Young people, cross-sector partners, and people of all genders from every setting, including humanitarian settings, must be meaningfully engaged in the design, development, and implementation of actions to accelerate the Beijing Agenda. If we all band together and collectively push for progress, we can successfully move us closer to a more gender-equal world.
Progress towards gender equality cannot wait.
