With funding from the Dutch government’s FLOW programme, Womankind Worldwide and our partners Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) Kenya,  Liberia Women Media Action Committee (LIWOMAC) and Women in Law and Development in Africa (WILDAF) Ghana are campaigning for women’s rights to be at the heart of the Post-2015 Development Framework. This paper sets out our shared vision for a framework with the potential to transform the lives of women and girls. Central to this is a standalone goal on women’s rights and gender equality, and transformative targets and indicators which mainstream gender equality throughout all goals. This position paper is based on our shared expertise and understanding of women’s rights, with particular emphasis on violence against women and women’s civil and political participation.
