Endorsing a Call for Gender Equality
The Working Group on Girls (WGG) is a coalition of over 80 national and international nongovernmental organizations with representation at the United Nations dedicated to promoting the human rights of girls in all areas and stages of life, advancing their status and inclusion, and recognizing and developing their full potential and capabilities as partners in action.
WGG has issued a statement to the Commission on the Status of Women 58 affirming the comprehensive approach to achieving gender equality, women’s and girls’ empowerment, and the human rights of all women and girls, through a stand-alone goal, to be integrated through targets and indicators to all goals, as essential to the post-2015 development framework. ICM has fully endorsed the statement. The statement can be viewed here.
