Beyond COVID-19: A feminist plan for sustainability and social justice
As the world learns to live with COVID-19, to emerge from the current crisis, and to “build back better”, UN Women’s new “Feminist plan” provides a visionary but practical roadmap for putting gender equality, social justice, and sustainability at the centre of the recovery and transformation.
The report, Beyond COVID-19: A Feminist Plan for Sustainability and Social Justice, was globally launched on 16 September, at an event that attracted more than 300 participants, featuring Gita Sen, Mercedes D’Alessandro, Hakima Abbas and Stella Funsani.
Since then, the Plan has received some great coverage in Social Europe, the World Economic Forum, The Telegraph and on the Carework Network website. At the Opening of the General Assembly in September 2021, UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador, Anne Hathaway, featured in a video based on the key messages of the Feminist Plan.
At COP26 in November, the Plan informed UN Women’s corporate positioning and was used as a basis for The Glasgow Women’s Leadership Statement on Gender Equality and Climate Change, led by Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon. We have been working to get the Plan referenced in key UN documents about COVID recovery, including the Secretary-General’s Policy Brief, “Investing in Jobs and Social Protection for Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Recovery”.
In December 2021, they launched the Feminist Plan in Geneva, at an event featuring Olivier De Schutter, Shahra Razavi and Noelene Nabulivou, and more than 200 participants (the recording is available here, passcode: aFDbq1#@).
