UK: Delivering for women globally: Womankind’s vision for the next UK Government

[London, 18 September 2014] A new Womankind policy briefing, launched in September 2014, calls on the incoming Government to ensure that its internationally-focused work delivers for women.

Today, Womankind is launching a new policy briefing to outline how the next UK government can and must deliver for women after the upcoming general election.

The briefing, entitled “ Delivering for women globally: Womankind’s vision for the next UK Government”, outlines priority actions to address the persistent violence, inequality and discrimination experienced by women worldwide. It also calls for an integrated approach which recognises the pivotal role of women’s rights organisations in both tackling the roots causes of gender inequality and empowering women to come together to know and claim their rights.

Over the months to come we will deliver our recommendations to policymakers, making a strong case for a robust and explicit focus on international gender equality and women’s rights in the UK Government’s future work.

Real change for women worldwide is possible – now we want to see it happen.
