To tackle the pushback on gender equality, foster and fund inclusive feminist movements

Open, Safe and Equal – Shaping a Feminist Digital Future
The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW67) is a “once in a generation” opportunity to build a feminist digital future. This was the urgent message shared by speakers and attendants that participated in the Generation Equality high-level event hosted by UN Women, in collaboration with the United Nations Foundation and the Leaders of the Generation Equality Action Coalition on Technology and Innovation for Gender Equality.
A call to place gender equality at the heart of the Global Digital Compact
The choices that will be made to develop shared principles for an open, free and secure digital future for all - the “Global Digital Compact” - will shape the digital transformation of our societies for the years to come. If we fail at intersecting the digital evolution and gender equality, the world will miss out on the opportunity to build a better, safer and more equal future.
