Systemic Barriers, Sustainable Development, and the Diversity of Rural Women and Girls CSW 62 provides a unique opportunity for rural women and girls, national governments and civil society to collaborate in the promotion of equitable, just and sustainable development at the local, national and global levels. As we review the challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls, it is imperative that we recognize rural women and girls as a multifaceted body of distinct communities having specialized strengths and nuanced needs. Attention and action must be directed toward the specific needs of subpopulations such as girls, youth, migrants, widows, indigenous and disabled persons as well as ethnic, religious, and gender minorities. Intersectionality between such groups must be evaluated and their compounding effects on inequity eliminated.
