July 02, 2021 @ 10:40 – July 02, 2021 @ 11:25


On the occasion of the Paris Generation Equality Forum (GEF), the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), in partnership with the French National Assembly and Senate, will be holding a side event on the theme Parliaments Act for Equal. The event will take place virtually on Friday 2 July 2021, from 10:40 to 11:25 CEST.

The event will support dialogue between parliamentarians and civil society actors, including those representing movements led by youth and girls, and showcase good practices on how parliaments can amplify the voices and leadership of women and girls and build partnerships to promote gender equality.

The Generation Equality Forum kicked off in Mexico City in March 2021 and will culminate in Paris from 30 June to 2 July 2021. This multi-stakeholder platform aims to drive much-needed synergies and bold action to achieve sustainable, transformative change for women and girls worldwide. Parliaments have a key role to play in delivering on the Forum’s goals.

In order to attend the Paris Forum and the side event of 2 July, please register.

Registration will be open until midnight CEST on 27 June.
