The SDGs and international law: opportunities and gaps to protect the rights of women and girls in the digital space
Equality Now and Women Leading in AI are campaigning for universal digital rights that are applicable in the digital sphere, and ensure the protection of all rights, particularly where there are gaps in the protection of international human rights.
Join this virtual side event, sponsored by the Government of Australia, at the UN High Level Political Forum (HLPF), to hear perspectives on universal digital rights with experts drawn from governments, the UN, and civil society discussing the opportunities presented by the SDGs and international law such as CEDAW to secure the rights of women and girls in the digital space. The discussion will also consider any gaps in protection, and how commitment to universal digital rights may help to address the gaps and contribute to achieving the SDGs.
