Time to Deliver on Global Commitments to Women and Girls

March 5, 2015, 10:30am ET - 12:00pm ET

2015 is a milestone year for the global women’s movement. Twenty years ago, the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women marked the beginning of a new era of activism. With her historic remarks, then-first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton helped galvanize a movement when she boldly declared that “human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights.”

This International Women’s Day, The Center for American Progress and Vital Voices Global Partnership are convening leaders from around the world and here at home to consider the progress we have made since 1995, the unfinished business that remains, and the significant opportunity that 2015 holds.

With the current Millennium Development Goals set to expire, major multilateral agreements are expected this year. This makes 2015 an exceptional opportunity to place bold and concrete actions to empower women and girls front and center.

An Economic Opportunity Agenda in the States

March 6, 2015, 9:00am ET - 10:15am ET

The economy is growing again, but too many low- and moderate-income families are not seeing any benefit. Instead, stagnant wages, rising costs, and unprecedented income inequality are only a few of the challenges that Americans face as they try to make ends meet in an economy that simply is not working for everyone.
