Eliminating Discriminatory Laws: Achieving Gender Equality on Paper and in Practice during Challenging Times
Discrimination in law has severe repercussion to women’s lived realities – and more so now as the world is facing the impact of COVID-19.

This event, organized by the International Development Law Organization (IDLO), the World Bank Group, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Permanent Mission of the Philippines to the United Nations, will highlight the urgent need to eliminate discriminatory laws across various areas of women’s lives – civil, political, economic, social and cultural, with heightened focus on gender-based violence, and identify promising approaches to expand political will and support for gender-equal legal reform. Furthermore, the panel will provide special attention to discriminatory laws in the context of the pandemic, particularly areas where such laws exacerbated existing inequalities as well as opened opportunities for transformative legal and societal change.

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in English, French and Spanish.
