Feminist Statement on Post2015 Development Agenda

February 27, 2014

As the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) approach their 2015 expiration date, a new set of Post2015 Sustainable Development Goals are being developed at the UN to guide the next generation development agenda.

Yet Post2015 discussions so far continue to lack an adequate human rights approach, and issues of gender equality and justice are particularly lacking.

A coalition of feminist organizations gathered after the last Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals to develop a feminist Post2015 statement demanding fundamental structural and transformational changes to the current development model.

WILPF endorses the feminist Post2015 statement and with our partners demands that the next development agenda promote women’s human rights, human security for all, and sustainable peace.

Read our statement: Gender, Economic, Social and Ecological Justice for Sustainable Development – A Feminist Declaration for Post 2015
