The Asfari Institute for Civil Society and Citizenship at the American University of Beirut (AUB), in partnership with the National Institute of Women of Mexico (INMUJERES) and UN Women, organized an Interactive Multistakeholder Dialogue to Mobilize Engagement on Care in the Arab States under the Global Alliance for Care.
During the 67th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW67), the Mexican singer Magos Herrera, in collaboration with the Italian composer Paola Prestini and other prominent musicians from around the world, performed at the United Nations headquarters in New York. The concert, titled “Con Alma” [With Soul], was held on 14 March and was presented by UN Women, Generation Equality, the Global Alliance for Care, the governments of Chile, Colombia and, through its National Institute for Women, Mexico.
On 13 March, UN Women, in partnership with the Generation Equality Action Coalitions on Feminist Movements and Leadership and Gender-Based Violence (GBV), gathered partners from across sectors to exchange experiences and identify strategies to counter the pushback on gender equality and strengthen civic space and women’s digital rights.
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.
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.
At the upcoming 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women, from 7-18 March 2023, UN Women is hosting two flagship side events, alongside many more Action Coalition-led events and activations. To support your engagement, we have compiled a list of Generation Equality activities scheduled throughout the two weeks. Be sure to save the dates and circulate within your networks – we look forward to seeing you there!
Young feminist voices and civil society leadership were elevated throughout every step of the 2021 Generation Equality Forum’s design processes and advisory mechanisms. In order to ensure that this innovative partnership model is sustained and promoted throughout the Generation Equality journey ahead, a Multi-Stakeholder Leadership Group has been established.
