Indigenous people in action / 36

The indigenous women of the Americas present an assessment of the progress, gaps and challenges in the exercise of our individual and collective rights, 25 years from the adoption of the Beijing Platform for Action. With this study based on official data and first-hand information from the indigenous women’s movement, ECMIA seeks to contribute to the dialogue among indigenous organizations, States and the intergovernmental system. It also aims at informing the decision-making process on actions needed to close the gaps and overcome the pending issues regarding indigenous women’s exercise of their rights.
