At the 74th UN General Assembly, leaders and gender equality advocates from around the world came together to look ahead to the Generation Equality Forum in 2020 and to take stock of the gender equality outcomes of the G7 Biarritz Summit.
The year 2020 will mark several important milestones for gender equality and sustainable development, including the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, one of the most comprehensive blueprints for women’s rights worldwide.
UN Women is determined to make sure that young people are in the driving seat of these galvanizing moments and contribute to all stages of the global review process and the generation equality campaign.
Mexico City, April 24, 2021 - Mexican artist Adry del Rocío painted the mural “Flying in Sorority” curated and produced by Street Art for Mankind (SAM) as part of the Generation Equality Forum closing ceremony. The piece, which aims to recognize Mexico’s feminist movements in all their diversity from a historical perspective, and call for action towards gender equality, is inspired by the aspirations of youth and will be Generation Equality’s legacy in the first city to host this international Forum.
