Young feminists of different civil society organizations from all over the world have come together in solidarity for the 61st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (13-24 March) and the 50th Commission on Population and Development (3-7 April) in New York. In a political climate of increasing conservatism, religious fundamentalism, funding withdrawals and the aggressive rollback of the rights of women and marginalized people, young feminists have gathered to share an alternative vision of a world that respects all genders, upholds gender equality, and places human rights at the core of its mandate. Young feminists, in all their diversities, are the driving force in their communities, building intersectional movements and pushing for political agendas that cross boundaries and advance human rights for all.
