Abstract:Erin Leigh shares her reflections on the generational interchange at the AWID Forum. For her, the AWID Forum created an exciting space for young women to be heard, seen, and listened to as an integral part of the proceedings. Her reflections are based on the conversations and dialogues she had together with other young women. While not claiming to be representative of young women as a whole, she tries to capture some feelings and signs of a strengthening presence of young women at the AWID Forum, and more broadly in international feminist movements.Development (2006) 49, 86–88. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100210
