What is the Generation Equality Forum?

The Generation Equality Forum is a global gathering for gender equality, convened by UN Women and co-chaired by France and Mexico, with and the close partnership of civil society. The Forum will be a global public conversation for urgent action and accountability for gender equality. It seeks to celebrate the power of women's rights activism, feminist solidarity and youth leadership to achieve transformative change.

The gathering presents a vital opportunity to chart the way forward and to accelerate the implementation pace of the gender equality commitments made in Beijing in 1995. It will be connected in real-time across the world through interactive satellite sessions enabled through technology to maximize participation. The Forum will enable feminist agenda setting and the launch of Action Coalitions that have concrete measurable targets and funding for gender equality for the period 2020-2025.

The Forum will kick-off in Mexico City, Mexico, on 7-8 May 2020 and culminate in Paris, France, on 7-10 July 2020. You can read more about the gatherings by selecting the events below.
