WOMEN’S FORUM CALL TO ACTION TO G7 LEADERS

Gender equality is critical to building an inclusive, sustainable and thriving world.

We call on G7 Leaders to mainstream a gender perspective in their decisions and actions, in order to achieve the objectives of Germany’s G7 Presidency.

We call on G7 Leaders to:

  • Collect gender-disaggregated data to inform their analysis and resolutions
  • Develop far-reaching policies to foster women’s empowerment and overcome systemic gender bias and stereotypes
  • Ensure diverse representation within decision-making bodies, across all sectors
  • Recognise and combat all forms of sexual and gender-based violence

We call on G7 Leaders to consider women as a heterogenous and diversified group, with different lived experiences; to recognise the complex realities of women facing intersecting forms of discrimination on the basis of origin, race, ability, sexual orientation and gender identity, status, age, religion, and all other forms of discrimination.

We call on G7 Leaders to raise women’s voices, to create change.
