Equality in law for women and girls by 2030: A multistakeholder strategy for accelerated action

Over 2.5 billion women and girls around the world are affected by discriminatory laws and the lack of legal protections, often in multiple ways. This strategy therefore provides a framework for a concerted and multistakeholder approach aimed at fast tracking the elimination of discriminatory laws across the board, while documenting experiences and lessons learned for further reform efforts.

The Equality in Law for Women and Girls by 2030: A Multistakeholder Strategy for Accelerated Action has been developed by UN Women, African Union, Commonwealth, Inter-Parliamentary Union, Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie and Secretaría General Ibero-Americana, in partnership with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Equality Now, Global Citizen, Global Campaign for Equal Nationality Rights, International Association of Women Judges, International Development Law Organization, Muslims for Progressive Values, and Women’s Learning Partnership.
