We need the best political leaders, people with best ideas, most creative and most driven to win the best possible future. For this reason we cannot allow half of the world's population to remain observers – "we cannot win with only half of the team". This is why gender equality matters.


I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

At the current pace of development we will need 300 years to reach gender equality globally. I will organize a working lunch on challenges and opportunities of using feminist foreign policy as a tool to accelerate progress.
Gender equality cannot be reached without the engagement of men. I will recruit three new male champions from different regional groups.
