Around the world and through the decades, we have all shared in the global struggle for gender equality. From the Suffragettes to the Ni Una Menos movement and from Sojourner Truth to Malala Yousafzai, activists and women’s movements have stood up and spoken out for a fairer world, time and time again. Regardless of our age, country, background or gender, the fight for equal rights has collectively defined our lives and we must take action together to achieve it.
This International Women’s Day, UN Women’s multi-generational campaign, Generation Equality, brings together past and present advocates to demand gender equality in this generation. 25 years since the adoption of the Beijing Platform for Action in 1995, the campaign mobilizes governments and civil society to take bold action and keep the promises of the visionary agenda for gender equality.
