"UNFPA is committed to advancing gender equality and ensuring that all women are free to define their lives and enjoy their rights, including their right to sexual and reproductive health. Women and girls with choices, including the ability to decide whether or when to become pregnant, are better able to participate fully and make free and informed decisions in all spheres of life. They and their families are healthier, and nations and economies are stronger and more sustainable. Gender equality is not just a women’s issue. It’s also the foundation for achieving sustainable development, peace and prosperity for all."

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
