IPU partners on SDG5 videos advancing gender equality

Watch the two short IPU videos on SDG 5 “Gender Equality”.  The first looks at how you can take concrete actions to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership, particularly in parliaments.

The second short video for parliamentarians on UN Sustainable Development Goal 5 also celebrates Women’s History Month. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the groundbreaking UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. UNSCR1325 was the first to address the impact of armed conflict on women, as well as women’s contribution to conflict resolution and sustainable peace.

The videos are produced in a partnership project between the IPU, Arizona State University, Corporate Women Directors International, the Council of Women World Leaders, Represent Women, the Reykjavík Index for Leadership, UN Women, the World Bank and Women Political Leaders. The videos are designed for people working in and for parliaments, and for societal champions advocating for change.
