Breakout session | Stage 1
Host: Restless Development
Tangible successes from the women’s rights movement, feminist leadership from Member States, as well as meaningful youth-led movements and innovations have significantly supported SDG5 and the Beijing+25 platform. This dialogue was conceived to bridge knowledge between earlier feminists from Beijing 1995, government stakeholders, and new and emerging realities that young feminists are shaping and experiencing today for building a more resilient and intergenerational vision for achieving gender equality and the Global Goals. Speakers will share quantifiable and expert analysis from across young and older feminist perspectives on what has been achieved and why, along with joint reflection on what needs to be transformed and innovated to move forward. Young people are experts in their own right and will be leading the dialogue to contextualize their unique knowledge on the challenges and opportunities for gender and sexual rights today. By framing the dialogue between different generations, the session will focus on what tangible approaches are needed for building resilient, intergenerational and long-lasting gender equality movements that streamline gender across all the Global Goals as well as ensure second line and sustainable leadership into the future.
