Argentina’s G20 Presidency has identified empowering women as essential to its key theme, and has committed to mainstreaming gender throughout the entire G20 agenda. The Gender Equality Policy Team of the U.S. G7/G20 Advocacy Alliance calls on the U.S. Government to play a leading role in encouraging the G20 to take the following actions, at home and abroad through its development assistance:
- Achieve the target to reduce the gender gap in labor force participation by 25% by 2025
- Launch a Leaders’ Initiative on Women’s Workforce Development
- Ensure schools and workplaces are free of sexual harassment and gender-based violence (GBV)
