Day of gender equality fighters
International Women’s Day is a chance to reflect on progress made, to try for a change and to celebrate acts of strength and bravery by ordinary women, who have played a remarkable role in the history of their countries and communities.
The world has made reached unprecedented advances, however not in gender equality.
Fifty years ago, we landed on the moon; in the last decade, we discovered new human ancestors and photographed a black hole for the first time.
In the meantime, legal limitations have kept 2.7 billion women from obtaining the same choice of jobs as men. Less than 25% of parliamentarians were women, as of 2019. Hard to believe, but one in three women experiences gender-related violence, yet.
Wish 2020 be for women and girls and their rights everywhere.
Women’s Day 2020 theme
The theme of Women’s Day 2020 is, I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights. The theme is aligned with UN Women’s new multigenerational campaign, Generation Equality, which indicates the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platforms for Action, the most progressive roadmap for the empowerment of women and girls.
The year 2020 is a pivotal year for promoting gender equality worldwide, as the global community takes stock of process made for women’s rights since the adoption of the Beijing Platform for Action.
It will also mark several other galvanizing moments in the gender equality movement: a five-year milestone towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals; the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council resolution 1325 on women, peace, and security; and the 10th anniversary of United Nation Women’s establishment.
The emerging global agreement is that despite some progress, real change has been agonizingly slow for the majority of women in the world. Today, no country can assert to have reached gender equality. Many obstacles remain fixed in law and culture.
Women and girls can not gain their real value; they work more and earn less and have fewer choices, and experience various forms of violence at home and in public places. Moreover, there is a notable threat of rollback of hard-won feminist gains.
The year 2020 represents an unmissable opportunity to mobilize global action to achieve gender equality and the human rights of all women and girls.
Celebration of International Women’s Day
The United Nations Observance of International Women’s Day 2020 will take place at the United Nations Secretariat in New York on Friday, 6 March 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.
The Observance aims to bring together the next generations of women and girl leaders and gender equality activists with the women’s rights advocates and visionaries who were instrumental in creating the Beijing Platform for Action more than two decades ago.
The event will celebrate change-makers of all ages and genders and discuss how they can collectively tackle the unfinished business of empowering all women and girls in the years to come.
When non-white female voices are heard and the rest of the world understands the extra hurdles and unique challenges faced by them, they can have energy and resources directed at them to be addressed first.
In an ideal world, this will bring us closer to equality within our gender, making us stronger and more united before we tackle the larger barrier of the gap between us and our binary opposites, males.
