The regional conference manifests the determination of women in the Nordic countries to promote girls’ and women’s empowerment and achieve gender equality. From June 12th – 15th 2014, 15,000 people will gather in Malmö, Sweden, to shape new strategies to promote gender equality and end discrimination against women. Discussions will be based on the landmark agreements for women’s rights: the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995), and the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) (1979). Representatives from numerous different sectors including NGOs, activist networks, government, academia and private enterprise, as well as members of the public, will be able to discuss gender equality, formulate new strategies to promote human rights and, above all, bring forward the debate on women’s rights.
Hosted by Women’s Rights Movement in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden
