The Women’s Major Group has launched the Position Paper for the 2021 High-Level Political Forum (HLPF). Gathering the intersectional analyses of feminists worldwide, the position paper reviews systemic barriers and recommendations for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and building a just recovery and feminist response to the pandemic.

“Without systemic change, structural inequalities will continue to shape our pandemic responses, derailing us further from achieving gender equality and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). States should heed the call of feminist advocates and place economic, racial, climate, and gender justice at the center of pandemic recovery and SDGs implementation.
