When analyzing and implementing the SDGs, we should not forget the main strength of previous international processes. Indeed, the Beijing process got its major force from the fact that it was largely stirred by grassroots movements. Indeed, progressive thoughts and initiatives often come from feminist groups that may not have an established organisation or legal entity, but they are the first ones to be confronted with local gender equality issues. Finding solutions to these challenges cannot wait, hence these groups and movements work with creativity and innovation to find answers. The roundtable aims to see how a better connection could be established between these movements and the political sphere and how the CSW could become more inclusive as well.
