NEW YORK (April 24, 2013)- Yesterday, WEDO was pleased to partner with the Baha’i International Community, and the International Movement ATD Fourth World in organizing and facilitating an informal breakfast dialogue with Member States, UN representatives and civil society on gender equality as an intrinsic component of sustainable development and the post-2015 development framework. The ninth in an ongoing series of breakfast dialogues, this session explored key aspects of women’s rights, barriers to achieving equality and proposals for a transformative agenda.

The questions posed during the dialogue included:

  • How do we include structural issues of gender inequality in the post-2015 development agenda?
  • How do we organize our economies and society so they do not foster deprivation and inequality?
  • How do we recognize the agency of activism for women to transform society?
  • Where do ethics come into the post-2015 agenda?
