Women Can't Wait! Beijing+20 edition with Sarah Jones

March 12, 2015, United Nations New York: Women Can't Wait! is based on our long running "Words & Deeds" campaign to end sex discrimination in the law. This 20th anniversary edition was presented by Equality Now and UN Women at the 59th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, with opening remarks by Equality Now Global Executive Director, Yasmeen Hassan, and United Nations Assistant Secretary-General, Lakshmi Puri.

Written and performed by Sarah Jones, prize-winning playwright, activist and Equality Now Advisory Board Member, the heartfelt and humorous performance highlights the consequences of unequal legal treatment of women and girls as well as the progress we've made to end it. It is skillfully introduced by Jane Fonda, actor, author, activist and Equality Now Adolescent Girls’ Legal Defense Fund Advisory Board Member.
