The annual session on gender equality and women's empowerment, is held 11 - 22 March 2024 under the theme, "Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective".

The world is at a crucial crossroad for gender equality. Globally 10.3 per cent of women live in extreme poverty today. Progress towards ending poverty needs to be 26 times faster to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
