Global Policy Frameworks as Enablers of Grassroots-Led Gender Equality Advocacy
March 7, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Every day, grassroots women’s rights and gender equality advocates challenge harmful norms, traditions, laws, and policies. Global policy frameworks like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda offer tremendous opportunities for advocates to increase their access to resources, boost their advocacy efforts and connect to global social movements.
Women Thrive Alliance, Habitat for Humanity International, United Nations Foundation, and the Society for International Development will discuss how grassroots women’s rights and gender equality advocates are leveraging global policy frameworks and using them to bring sustained change in their communities and countries.
