Twenty-five years since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most visionary agenda for women’s rights and empowerment everywhere, no country in the world has achieved gender equality.

Generation Equality is for every person, no matter their gender, hometown, age, sexual preference, race or religion. It’s about achieving equal rights and opportunities for all women and girls.As 2019 comes to a close, we’re looking ahead to a landmark year for women’s rights and gender equality. In 2020, we’ll celebrate not only the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action, but also UN Women’s 10th birthday, five years since the adoption of the Sustainable Development goals, and the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council resolution 1325 on women, peace and security. All of these moments are opportunities to move the needle closer to gender equality. From sharing care responsibilities at home and ensuring safety in public spaces, to securing equal pay for work of equal value and representation in decision-making, let’s make 2020 the year of equality. 

This month in Generation Equality, we are taking a look back at some of the highlights of 2019, learning more about the human rights of women and hearing from women migrants.
