Around the world, girls and young women are driving change. They are activists and advocates on the front lines of movements for social and racial equality. They are calling for urgent action and demanding space at decision-making tables in their communities, countries and beyond. Just being a girl is often enough to be denied freedom of expression and an equal chance to participate in decision-making.

This event taking place on the sidelines of HRC50 will focus on the voices of girls and young women who are advocates for gender equality in their countries. They will share their personal experiences of trying to influence decision-making processes and which issues global leaders should prioritise to ensure that girls and young women all over the world can have a seat at the table.


  • 6 girls and young women advocates from around the world
  • Ms. Dorothy Estrada-Tanck, Vice-Chair of the UN Working Group on Discrimination Against Women and Girls
