What is The Women Deliver Conference?
The Women Deliver Conference is a triennial gathering that promotes the health, rights, and general well-being of women and girls around the world. Since its inception in 2007, this significant event has grown to rank among the biggest international forums for the discussion of gender equality. It seeks to make strides toward attaining gender parity in all spheres of life by amplifying the voices of women.
The Women Deliver Conference is significant because it significantly influences international discourse and legislation on gender equality and women's empowerment. It offers a forum for exchanging information, best practices, and creative responses to the problems women and girls confront around the world. The conference seeks to promote collaborations, mobilize resources, and drive action toward attaining Sustainable Development Goal 5 - gender equality - by bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders, including activists, policymakers, scholars, and grassroots organizations.
Empowerment and Rights
By upholding women's rights and encouraging their active participation in decision-making at all levels, the conference aims to advance women's empowerment.
It focuses on enhancing the health and happiness of women by addressing concerns including maternal health, reproductive rights, access to healthcare, and putting an end to gender-based violence.
Gender Equality and Social Inclusion
The conference emphasizes the significance of developing inclusive communities that acknowledge and address intersecting kinds of prejudice, such as those based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and disability.
The conference places a strong emphasis on young people's meaningful involvement in developing the laws and programs that have an impact on their lives, acknowledging the transformative power of youth.
