Women Thrive is located in Washington, D.C. We regularly hold events with our coalition partners, administration staff and decision-makers on Capitol Hill. Here you'll find information on some of our past events.
Still Left Behind: Women's Rights Groups' Participation and Leadership in U.N. and SDG Implementation Decision-Making
Join the Women's Major Group, Women Thrive Alliance and the Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition to discuss and unpack the systemic and structural barriers faced by gender equality advocates and groups, including WHRDs, as they attempt to engage, as equal stakeholders, with the U.N. and national-level governments on SDG implementation processes.
Grassroots groups around the world are eager and poised to participate in the implementation of the SDGs, so why haven’t they been fully integrated into SDG-era decision-making?
Still Left Behind: Grassroots Women’s Rights Organizations’ Inclusion in SDG5’s National Implementation Processes
Women Thrive Alliance recently completed its 2017 National SDG Scorecard (NSC), which measures grassroots women’s rights and gender equality organizations’ knowledge of as well as participation in national-level SDG implementation.
Grassroots women and girls were largely absent from the creation and implementation of the MDGs. While the development of the SDGs was a more inclusive process, gender equality and women’s rights groups still struggle to be included in decision-making on these goals.
Every day, grassroots women’s rights and gender equality advocates challenge harmful norms, traditions, laws, and policies.
Tools for Empowerment: Translating Improvements in Care into Opportunities for Women
For too long, women and girls’ voices have been excluded from global policymaking. Collective advocacy can change that.
