We’ve brought together feminist experts on a range of issues that affect people not just in G7 countries, but across the globe.
Research shows that when women’s diverse perspectives are included at the table, both the discussion and outcomes are more effective and inclusive.
We will be framing the discussion around several thematic areas.
Building a more peaceful and secure world by advancing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, addressing the gendered dimensions of global displacement and working towards prevention and disarmament.
Safeguarding gains in SRHR by tackling unequal power dynamics grounded in social constructions of gender and patriarchal attempts to control women’s bodies and choices.
Shedding a light on the myriad types of violence women experience, especially LGBTQ2 communities and racialized women, and promoting transformative actions to ensure women live a life free of violence.
Tackling inequality and marginalization recognizing the multiple and intersecting aspects of identity that play out in our lives and experiences, such as gender, age, disability, ethnicity, class, race and others.
