In recent years, feminist foreign policy has emerged as
a mechanism to advance the objectives of the Beijing Declaration and
Platform for Action, as well as a number of other issues essential to
achieving gender equality. As this movement has grown, an expanding
global network of governments and civil society are coming together to
support its meaningful implementation.
In the context of the Generation Equality Forum,
feminist foreign policy is one of the priority actions under Action Coalition 6: Feminist Movements
and Leadership. This official Generation Equality Forum
side event will feature speakers from the governments of Mexico, Sweden,
and Libya; the Equality Fund; and the International Center for
Research on Women (ICRW), who will discuss
the core elements of feminist foreign policy, share lessons learned,
and announce new, transformative commitments, including the launch of
the Global Partner
Network for Feminist Foreign Policy, where feminists
inside and outside of government will collaborate to understand,
refine, and advance the core elements of feminist foreign policy.
