Space for civil society and social movement activism around the world is shrinking. Feminist movements and women human rights defenders face additional layers of oppression due to their critical role of challenging patriarchal societies.
Join us in linking SDG 5 on gender equality and SDG 16 on peaceful societies to help secure an enabling environment for the feminist movements and women affected by conflict worldwide and their participation in implementing and realizing Agenda 2030.
