Opening of the Generation Equality Forum: 100 feminist associations call for mobilisation for the universal rights of women

01.07.2021 / Created by (EMWF)

The Feminist Collective for the Generation Equality Forum, which brings together more than a hundred French, European and international civil society organizations, based on a universalist and intergenerational approach, in continuity with the movements and struggles of women and of their feminist associations, and with respect for their diversity. Solemnly alert the President of the Republic, the States, institutions and actors of the international community meeting at the Paris Forum. The Collective for the Generation Equality Forum regrets that the method of organization of the EGF does not correspond to the format of a multilateral UN event and that the place of women’s and feminist organizations is unequal, particularly in view of the lack of resources of the vast majority of them. However, the Generation Equality Forum could play a mobilizing and accelerating role in the equality process, if the commitments presented by the thematic action coalitions were based on the base that the collective defines in the following document.
