The Feminist and Women’s Movement Action Plan (fwMAP): mobilising globally for Beijing +25
In 2020, the United Nations will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women when 189 countries signed on to the Beijing Platform for Action. This must be a game-changing year, an opportunity for the feminist and women’s movement to produce a transformative framework and new alliances. Soon-Young Yoon and Melissa Upreti, along with Krishanti Dhamaraj, founders and drivers of the Feminist and Women’s Movements Action Plan (fwMAP) and members of the Beijing +25 Global Advisory Working Group established the goals, principles of organising, and hopes for this process in the context of Beijing +25 in July and August 2019. Organising under the fwMAP is premised on a reaffirmation of human rights principles and feminist values of agency, autonomy, and inclusion as the basis for a collective roadmap and approach for achieving gender equality.
