Women in Civil Society and Activism
Virtual side event to the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly
“Celebrating Women in Civil Society and Activism," a high-level report to the United Nations that recognizes the leadership of women activists and their organizations around the world. Crucially, the report finds the freedom to form unions and freely associate is fundamental to women's ability to create positive change.
“Faced with narrowing civic space, mounting inequalities and rising fundamentalisms, women have persisted in their fight for structural change, speaking truth to power and building resilience in their communities. The free exercise of the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association underpins the existence of these movements and organizations."
