CSOs question French government's commitment to funding gender equality
On the eve of the Generation Equality Forum co-hosted by France and Mexico, French civil society organizations (CSOs), including Equilibres & Populations, Coordination SUD, and Osez le féminisme !, published an open letter calling on the French government to fulfill its commitment to fund gender equality, both domestically and internationally.
This open letter was published one year after the French Council of Ministers ratified a €120 million (USD$133) fund dedicated to supporting feminist organizations around the world. The fund was announced by French President, Emmanuel Macron, as part of the French G7 presidency. Since then, no concrete action has been taken to increase financial support for women's rights and the €120 million (USD$133) fund has still not been initiated.
