Women are mobilizing… Women from across Civil Society and across the globe are mobilizing to thank UNAIDS for their investments in women and girls and to let them know that there is still so much to be done. We urgently need to have global leadership, partnership and accountability that includes women from grassroots upwards to shape, guide and influence the policies and interventions that impact our lives. We can not go backwards and must have systems in place that protect our gains and continue to move us forward.
Please find the sign-on letter below to UNAIDS.
Anyone who wishes to sign on can email kristenldegraaf <at> gmail.com with your name, country and organization (if applicable) by 24 Feb. Please share widely. Thank you everyone!
Brightest Wishes, Ebony Johnson
Women have spoken: #WhatWomenWant is renewed leadership, investment, and partnership
We are at an historic moment rich with opportunity, yet we are challenged with ambiguity, contradiction, and uncertainty that threaten to reverse the gains made in terms of our rights, our health, and our equality. The connections we make, the work we undertake, the experiences we bring, the vision we shape, and the future we build together is more critical than ever to achieve a world where women in all our diversity and across our lifecycle lead and realize our dreams. Achieving our rights and health, and living with dignity, depends on achieving justice, safety, and equality for all.
The most effective solutions for women and girls must include us, our voices, our visions, and our guidance.
