Key recommendations from the Feminists for a Binding Treaty
The Feminists for a Binding Treaty (F4BT) will join discussions at Geneva this week on a Binding Treaty to regulate corporate impacts on human rights. In order to account for the gendered and differential impact of business activities on human rights, the legal framework and drafting process must put women, gender-diverse people and communities at the centre of decision-making. With this being the UN Working Group's 9th session developing the draft treaty, F4BT calls for a feminist lens to be applied to the language and provisions of the treaty. Read our position paper for our key recommendations on a gender-responsive, inclusive and effective human rights framework that protects people from corporate abuse.
Feminists for a Binding Treaty is a coalition of over 30 human rights organisations, representing a large and diverse network of women’s lived experiences, shared analysis and expertise from around the world in the process for a Binding Treaty. Keep in touch with our updates on Twitter at #Feminists4BindingTreaty, and join us as we advocate for better protection of the rights of women and gender-diverse people.
