‘We will not be mainstreamed into a polluted stream’: An ecofeminist critique of SDG 5

Dr. Sherilyn MacGregor and Aino Ursula Maki, University of Manchester

We caution against developing another set of reductive goals, targets and indicators that ignore the transformational changes required to address the failure of the current development model rooted in unsustainable production and consumption patterns exacerbating gender, race and class inequities. We do not want to be mainstreamed into a polluted stream. We call for deep and structural changes to existing global systems of power, decision-making and resource sharing. This includes enacting policies that recognize and redistribute the unequal and unfair burdens of women and girls in sustaining societal wellbeing and economies, intensified in times of economic and ecological crises (Statement by WGC, DAWN WECF 2013).
