During the UN General Assembly, the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) and Save the Children co-convened an expert roundtable discussion on Financing for Gender Equality, with sponsorship from the Feminist UN Campaign. The conversation centered around the Secretary-General’s plan to inaugurate a High-Level Task Force on Financing for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment. This open letter addressed to Secretary-General Guterres captures the topline issues raised in our discussion. It makes the case for broadening the remit of the Task Force and ensuring civil society input and participation. The letter was endorsed by over 130 organizations and individuals.
