During the Generation Equality Forum celebrated in Paris, the participants determined some actions to fight against the gender equality crisis and get a better world.

From 30 June to 2 July took place in Paris the Generation Equality Forum, an inflection point to confront the gender equality crisis, exacerbated because of Covid-19, and spur major investments, policy, and programmes to advance gender equality and women’s rights.

Convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the governments of Mexico and France, in partnership with youth and civil society, the Forum will bring together governments, feminist leaders, youth, and change makers from every sector, to announce trailblazing gender equality investments, programmes, and policies.

During this Forum, the participants identified some relevant actions that institutions should make in the following years to fight against  the gender equality crisis:

  • Policies that recognize, reduce, and redistribute care work and create an additional 80 million decent care jobs.
  • Laws that protect 550 million more women and girls from gender-based violence.
  • Doubling the proportion of women working in technology and innovation, while increasing investment in gender-responsive climate solutions.

At the same time, they mark seven ways that society can take to change the world and #ActforEqual:

  • End gender-based violence.
  • Guarantee economic justice and rights.
  • Ensure bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
  • Feminist action for climate justice.
  • Foster technology and innovation for gender equality.
  • Invest in feminist movements and leadership.
  • Put women in the heart and at the helm of peace, security, and humanitarian action.
