WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM COVID AND HOW CAN WE MOVE FORWARD?
CAN GENDER EQUALITY PLANS HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE?
In our society, gender equality continues to be a relevant issue that needs a voice. Although we have come a long way, many of the challenges women face today already existed 25 years ago when the Beijing Platform and Declaration for Action (BPDfA) was published, and we still have a long way to go. The BDPfA was – and still is – the most progressive document on women's rights and the most comprehensive global initiative ever designed. Gender equality is not, contrary to what many still think, a women's problem. It is a fundamental right and a prerequisite for an inclusive and future-focused society.
