Launch of new Platform on Gender Equality and Religion

UN Women, the Department for International Development and the International Partnership for Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD) collaborated on a seminal new initiative on “Gender Equality and Religion for the Gender Responsive Implementation of the 2030 Agenda”.

The platform on gender equality aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 5 and 17, which call on ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls everywhere by 2030, covering all areas of discrimination in law, policies, and practices.

This platform aims to bring together religious and traditional leaders, leaders of faith based and civil society organisations, as well as gender and development experts to unpack how achieving gender equality can be pursued from within a religious lens. Read further here.
