In 2021, for the first time in 26 years, a global conference on women’s rights is being held: the Generation Equality Forum. At the heart of this commemoration is UN Women’s multi-generational advocacy campaign: “Generation Equality: For Women’s Rights and an Equal Future”. To meet the challenge of women’s empowerment, actors of all ages, genders and sectors need to get involved.
To contribute to the success of this major event and advance women’s equality and rights, on May 12, 2021, XOESE, the Francophone Women’s Fund and the Congolese Women’s Fund launched the I COMMIT! campaign during a Zoom meeting with their partners.
The goal of this campaign is to mobilize local actors in Francophone Africa and Haiti to make concrete commitments in support of the six Coalitions of Action and the Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action Facility to be launched during the Paris Forum.
Since the launch of the campaign, 12 national advocacy groups have been formed to carry out the actions in their respective countries. To facilitate the work of the national advocacy groups, the campaign coordination team has made available a toolkit containing various materials such as sample letters, posters and stickers. (When you open the toolkit in your web browser, you will be able to click on the hyperlinks to download the campaign materials.)
Below, we have attached resources that demonstrate the work of national advocacy groups.
