Unfortunately, we still need to talk about gender equality. Fortunately, Geneva is moving ahead: in international human rights fora, we spell out how to advance towards equality. Geneva mechanisms remind us of legal obligations to strive for equality. I am proud to be a member of the International Gender Champions, and hope to be able to support this network in promoting gender equality – in Geneva and worldwide.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
