Become a champion for the rights of young women with the #WhatWomenWant Day on Thursday, 6 April 2017. Join the conversation using the hashtag #WhatWomenWant. Share your messages of what you want and need to achieve gender equality and fulfill your human rights. 

Tweet throughout the day and spread the word - The campaign will share what adolescent girls and young women across the world have called for throughout the #WhatWomenWant campaign.  If you need inspiration, explore what young people want at www.whatwomenwant.format.com. The campaign will also launch a new campaign report, the result of six months of consultation with women and young women globally in 2016, #WhatWomenWant: A Transformative Framework for women, girls and gender equality in the context of HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

#WhatWomenWant is powered by young women and partners who want to be meaningfully involved in making change for women and girls. Using social media, it offers an innovative vehicle to amplify new voices, meet young women where they are, connect with others, lead with lived expertise, bring their solutions to the table, and build across and between issues, sectors, and movements. In order to meet the ambitious targets set by the Sustainable Development Goals and other commitments, it is important that  there is sustained investment in women-led partnerships and feminist organizing to advance gender equality and bring forth a transformative society.
