The IPU has made bold commitments and taken steps towards ensuring women and girls’ voices are heard in decision-making, and that young women are politically empowered. The IPU collaborates with strong partners such as the Generation Equality Forum (GEF), a civil society-centered global coalition for gender equality launched in 2021.
As a co-leader of GEF’s Action Coalition 6 on Feminist Movements and Leadership, the IPU has committed to the following:
- Empower women leaders, especially young women, and promote synergies with women and girls from civil society
- Support and strengthen measures to achieve gender parity in parliaments by 2030
- Promote gender-sensitive parliaments that drive a feminist agenda and are sexism-free and family-friendly
