Convening on Tackling the Taboo
Taking a gender-transformative approach to realizing adolescent girls’ rights
January 22, 2020
A diverse group of stakeholders came together for a one-day convening to discuss and unpack key findings from the Tackling the Taboo report and share experiences from their own work. Meeting participants included funders, civil society organizations, international nongovernmental organizations, UN agency and government representatives, and advocates working in the area of child, early, and forced marriages and unions and adolescent girls’ rights. Together they identified challenges and opportunities related to increasing understanding of and support for feminist, gender-transformative approaches to CEFMU and girls’ rights more broadly, with a focus on the role of funding institutions.
