For the first time ever, the G7 engagement process includes a summit of diverse feminist leaders – the W7: Feminist Visions for the G7. The W7 will bring together feminists who are trailblazers in their communities, ensuring that marginalized voices can engage equally in decision and policy-making processes. Their voices, perspectives and leadership are essential to ensuring that the outcomes of this year’s G7 respond to the realities of women around the world.
Women, in all their diversity, have been at the forefront of innovative solutions to poverty, inequality, conflict and climate change. Over a two-day span these leaders will be working together to articulate a feminist vision for the G7 – one that ensures that responses to today’s challenges have the realization of women’s rights and gender equality at their heart.
Research shows that when women’s diverse perspectives are included at the table, both the discussion and outcomes are more effective and inclusive.
