Processing intro video. Please check back later.


The Generation Equality Forum took place in Mexico City in March and in Paris in June-July 2021. Twenty-five years after the Beijing World Conference on Women, which led to the elaboration of the Beijing Platform for Action, a global and comprehensive agenda aiming at achieving gender equality worldwide, government and civil society leaders met again to take stock on the achievements and the remaining route to reach this ambitious objective. The Forum launched a 5-year action plan to achieve progress towards gender equality. It has also been an opportunity to secure $40 Billion in financial commitments from States, foundations and the private sector.

Through a new methodology, the Forum intended to open up a space for a multi-stakeholder and multi-generational dialogue. Confronting different visions of feminisms, while putting a strong emphasis on the need to focus on action and efficiency, the Forum aimed at becoming a platform for the emergence of new voices. What are the main challenges and advances identified by the rising feminist voices from the South through this Forum? Has this Forum marked the entrance in a new era for gender equality?
