Call for Caribbean Women to add their voices to Global UN Survey

PRESS RELEASE

BRIDGETOWN, 20 March 2024 – The United Nations has launched a “We the Women Global Survey” to hear from women everywhere about their vision for the future.

Women of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to let their voices be heard through the survey, which captures the perspectives of women on global issues they care about most, and how the international community can address them.

The survey, available in multiple languages, was launched on March 8 on International Women’s Day. It is currently being rolled out to thousands of women around the world, under the slogan: Take 10 minutes to change the world – Every voice counts we need yours!

Women in all Member States and from different geographic areas, age groups, and educational backgrounds, including those who are not typically UN stakeholders, are urged to participate. With the upcoming SIDS4 Conference slated for Antigua and Barbuda in May, Caribbean women are also encouraged to add their voices to the conversation.

The anonymous survey asks women about their priorities, fears, hopes, and vision for the future and how global leaders can collectively support them to address issues, challenges, and opportunities. Results will inform key decision-makers and contribute to the Pact for the Future to be adopted during the September 2024 Summit of the Future.

Participants can find the survey and additional information at  https://unpartnerships.un.org/we-the-women. Persons can also share social media content, using the #WetheWomen hashtag: We the Women Social Media Package.

The We the Women campaign, managed by the UN Office for Partnerships (UNOPS), was launched in September 2023, on the margins of the 2023 SDG Summit. It is part of the Women Rise for All Initiative – a global network of women leaders—started by the UN Deputy Secretary-General in 2020 to recognize the transformational leadership of women in response to COVID-19 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
