Gender equality and women's rights at the UN General Assembly post-2015 discussion

As we approach the 69th session of the UN General Assembly, the Gender and Development Network (GADN) calls on Member States to ensure that the final post-2015 framework will be an ambitious one containing all the elements needed to achieve gender equality and women’s rights.  To achieve this, the framework will need to build on the positive advances made thus far in negotiations, while filling in the missing gaps.  

The Gender and Development Network has laid out elsewhere our full position on the post-2015 framework and the need to make gender equality and women’s rights a central issue. In this briefing we reflect first on the overall current state of the debate and then comment on the final Outcome Document of the Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals, suggesting what could be usefully kept or improved.
