The Action Coalitions are highlighting the concrete action steps that they see as central to a new and bold feminist agenda within the next 5 years. Examples include:

The Generation Equality Forum responds to the fact that 26 years after the landmark Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing public rhetoric on gender equality has not been matched by action and implementation. COVID-19 has exacerbated existing inequities, with reports of rising violence against women, as well as greater adverse economic impacts.

The initial draft actions of the Action Coalitions may be viewed here. Full 'blueprints' detailing the draft agendas of each action coalition will be unveiled at the Generation Equality Forum in Mexico City, March 29-31 and commitments toward the action coalitions will be announced in Paris in June 2021.  Registration for the Mexico event is now open at this link. Further information on the Mexico City Forum can be found here.

Welcoming the initial work of the Action Coalitions Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women, said: "The pandemic has had a disastrous impact on women's and girls' lives and been a major set-back in the drive to achieve equality in our generation. The Generation Equality Forum – fueled by the work of the Action Coalitions – is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to permanently change course. We call on governments, corporations and change-making organizations around the world to join our urgent drive for action and commitments."
