ICRW released a set of recommendations for the new United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres, which together form a concrete agenda for action for the new Secretary-General to actively champion women’s rights with world leaders and within the United Nations system. These recommendations present a set of actions that could be taken by the new Secretary-General in his first hundred days to advance this vision and in response to the widespread and unprecedented calls for female and feminist leadership of the United Nations. The recommendations were developed in collaboration with a number of leading feminist activists, philanthropists, UN insiders and former UN officials.
