Position Paper on Resourcing Feminist Movements

Download File

This position paper has been developed and signed by a coalition of 145 women’s rights civil society organizations (WCSOs) in the context of the forthcoming Generation Equality Forum (GEF). The GEF includes Action Coalitions that seek “tangible results” on “financing” and “gender data and accountability”, including coalitions specifically on “Economic justice and rights” and “Feminist movements and leadership”.

According to the GEF website, “Each Action Coalition will propose a targeted set of concrete, ambitious and immediate actions within the period of 2020-2025 to deliver tangible impact on gender equality and girls’ and women’s human rights. They will secure financing for this agenda, to address systemic resource gaps that have so far hampered impact.” This paper proposes commitments that the undersigned would like to see UN agencies, the European Union (EU) and state fundermake, in close consultation with WCSOs and feminist movements
