Leading up to and during the 2017 High-Level Political Forum at the United Nations, Women Thrive Alliance delivered one central message: grassroots women’s rights groups and gender equality advocates need to be #InTheRoom for Sustainable Development Goals decision-making and implementation planning at the national and global levels. The campaign was launched at the HLPF to bring attention and awareness to the fact the the aforementioned groups and individuals are still being left behind and out of the SDGs. Over the course of less than a week, #InTheRoom generated buzz, not only in New York, but in Afghanistan, Nigeria, Sweden, India, and many more countries around the world.
Below are the highlights of the social media #InTheRoom campaign. Women Thrive used Storify to share highlights the event.
