The formulation of the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have involved greater consultation with civil society than their predecessors, the Millennium Development Goals. This has been welcome to many development non-government organisations undertaking advocacy on women’s rights and gender equality, which have engaged with the SDG process in various ways. This article, written by a feminist working in the international NGO (INGO) sector, elaborates on why and how the INGO Oxfam engaged in the process to formulate the new post-2015 development agenda. It provides insights into Oxfam’s policy analysis, strategy development, and political engagement in advocating for a stand-alone gender equality goal, including together with allies.
