4FeministUNSG – We demand a progressive feminist leader!
Join the call for a feminist leader of the United Nations!
In February 2021, the President of the United Nations General Assembly and the President of the United Nations Security Council announced the launch of a process to appoint a new Secretary-General for the term beginning in 2022.
This represents a critical opportunity to call for a better selection process and a new leader who will help guide the world towards a future of feminist peace. The new Secretary-General must embody and uphold feminist values and principles, and be committed to pursuing equality, justice, and security for people and the planet.
We all have a role to play in ensuring the next Secretary-General of the United Nations is a true feminist – someone who represents us all.
You can help influence the selection process by:
- Downloading our campaign assets below and share your thoughts on social media using the hashtag #4feministUNSG – coming soon, 8 April 2021
- Nominating someone you would like to be considered for the role of Secretary-General.
- Write op-eds and blog posts, host webinars, record podcasts, and organise letter-writing campaigns.
