United Kingdom launches new global women and girls strategy on International Women’s Day

Posted: Wednesday, March 8, 2023. 2:48 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The United Kingdom (UK) today launched a new global women and girls strategy in honor of International Women’s Day.

The British High Commission in Belize noted that with the new strategy, women and girls will be put at the heart of UK’s international work.

The new strategy will tackle gender inequality across the globe.

For the first time, this strategy commits the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to more than 80% of its bilateral aid programmes including a focus on gender equality by 2030.

The strategy puts a continued focus on educating girls, empowering women and girls, championing their health and rights and ending gender-based violence – the challenges the UK believes are most acute.

This will include the network of High Commissions and Embassies around the world to deliver the strategy.

This will include UK Heads of Mission developing plans and commitments specific to their host country and raising the most pressing issues with their host governments.

The UK will also develop an ambitious new research offer to help the UK and its partners make investment decisions.

The UK is also increasing support for women’s rights organisations and movements, recognising their critical role in advancing gender equality and protecting rights, and amplifying grassroots women’s and girls’ voices.

Most of this £38 million programme will be delivered through a new partnership with the Equality Fund.
