Gender & Development Volume 24, Issue 1, March 2016
The Sustainable Development Goals, which replace the Millennium Development Goals, will form a significant element in the constellation of international agreements which will shape the world for women in the next decade and a half. They should offer an entry point to movements fighting for rights and social justice, including women’s movements, and to all involved in fighting economic inequality and poverty. The articles in this issue of G&D are written by a range of prominent women’s rights activists and advocates – many of whom have been directly involved in the creation of Agenda 2013 and the SDGs – and offer a ‘first cut’ analysis. The authors focus on the outcomes of the negotiation process, and the potential these offer to feminists working inside and outside official ‘development’ circles to progress gender equality and women’s rights in the years to come.
