  • The Feminist Principles for Including Gender in the GDC (September, 2023)

    The development of the feminist principles listed here has been a dynamic and multifaceted process, drawing inspiration and guidance from a range of sources, such as the Agreed Conclusions of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) 67; the conclusions of a UN Women & Equality Now consultation event at CSW; and a submission to the Global Digital Compact consultation by APC, following an event with gender rights and digital organisations in March 2023. The principles also draw on United Nations Human Rights Council (A/HRC) resolutions, and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

    Here we provide comments on the GDC Zero Draft, released by the process Co-Facilitators—
    Sweden and Zambia— in April 2024. These comments are the result of a collective process and
    seek to advance the centrality of gender issues in the GDC, ensuring that the governance,
    development, and use of technology is inclusive and benefits women and girls, in all their
    diversity, around the world. This approach seeks to prevent the deepening of gender inequality
    and promote equitable access and participation in the digital context.
