Women 20


Women 20 is a group created as an outreach group of the Group of Twenty (G20). Women's full involvement into economic and social processes is W20's goal. Participants of the group are to consult the Group of Twenty on development of women's agenda and gender inclusiveness. That allows men to look at economic processes in a different way and use women's strong potential for solving global problems and achieving sustainable development.
