Feminist groups, trade unionists, women’s and community-based organizations, indigenous groups, disability rights advocates, LBTQ+ and gender non-conforming people, intersex people, women human rights defenders and girls’ and youth-led organizations (among others) have made this document on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women.
This is a roadmap for all states committed to work for women, girls and LGBTIQ people’s human rights.
As part of the Women’s Rights Caucus, recognizing that several member states lack political courage or will to commit to an ambitious political declaration 25 years after the Fourth World Conference on Women, we undertake to offer what we believe is a truly meaningful and reflective feminist declaration; one that takes stock of the current state of the world and the realities of women, girls and gender-non-conforming people in all their diversities.
This declaration identifies and addresses new and existing challenges, and outlines the necessary areas that a fresh, progressive and bold international agenda for gender equality and women’s and girls’ human rights can address.
