peace&justice café: The Path Ahead for Gender Justice
17 November @ 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
On 17 November at the peace&justice café, explore what gender justice means and how it can help us achieve more peaceful and just societies.
The United Nations has highlighted gender equality as “essential to achieve peaceful societies” and sustainable development. But despite decades of time and effort, at the current rate of change, it will take 136 years to close the global gender gap. While equity is more obvious in an area like education, in other sectors like politics and the economy, women are still to break the ‘glass ceiling’. In conflict and post-conflict settings, women are also disproportionately impacted.
