Gender Equality will be central to our G7 Presidency and will be reflected across multiple strands of G7 work. Within the Foreign and Development track, we aim to secure G7 agreement on ambitious new access and learning targets for girls' education, as well as G7 policy and financial commitments, including a successful replenishment of the Global Partnership for Education. The track will also seek to strengthen the G7's commitment to women's political and economic empowerment and to ending violence against women and girls.
