Women Deliver 2023: WD2023

Convening thousands of advocates on site, and a larger number online from diverse fields, WD2023 has been co-created by grassroots advocates, youth, civil society, governments, multilateral organisations, and the private sector, including from and representing communities facing systemic discrimination around the world.

With sexual and reproductive health and rights at its core, WD2023 will address issues impacting girls and women – from climate change, to gender-based violence, to unpaid care work – and collectively identify and action evidence-based solutions. 

The theme for WD3023 “Spaces, Solidarity and Solutions” focuses on sharing inclusive and co-created spaces to advance sustainable solutions on gender equality. WD2023 objectives also include catalysing collective action to advance gender equality, holding leaders accountable, empowering the feminist movement, reframing who leads, as well as creating an accessible and inclusive space for everyone.

5 Key Messages for Women Deliver 2023

  1. We BELIEVE in the potential of girls, women and young people, in all their diversity. We ASPIRE to be included in all decision-making spaces. We WANT to see more girls and young women as movement leaders, activists, changemakers and politicians.” (Statement from girls in the Girls Get Equal Manifesto). 
  1. Decision-makers at all levels must be held accountable for their commitments to adolescent girls – through the institutionalisation of the meaningful and safe participation of girls and their groups and the adoption of fully resourced and accountable policies, strategies and frameworks (Equal Power Now Report). 
  1. We believe all girls and young people must have their rights upheld before, during and after crises. This demands urgent action by governments, donors and other humanitarian actors to protect girls and young women from increased risks of dropping out of school, child, early and forced marriage and unions, unintended pregnancy, sexual exploitation, violence and food insecurity. This includes through resilience and preparedness actions as well as in response to crisis (Girls in Crisis Advocacy Framework). 
  1. “We are aware that during crises, children and youth are at risk of further harm, abuse and exploitation. That is why we, as young people, want to partner with, lend our voice and propose solutions to raise awareness of the obstacles to education in emergencies. We know that when children and young people have access to education, it helps to relieve them of traumatic experiences they may have suffered. It also saves students’ lives in emergency situations, especially for girls and young women”. (Youth for Education in Emergencies Global Panel). 
  1. We believe that girls and young people in all their diversity have the right to make their own free and informed choices, to exercise bodily autonomy, and to have control over their sexual and reproductive health and lives, free from coercion, violence, discrimination and abuse (SRHR Position Paper).
