Mexico's Feminist Foreign Policy is an opportunity to actively engage and contribute to the promotion of substantive gender quality through multilateral fora. Women’s and girls’ full, effective and meaningful participation in public life and decision-making processes is crucial to achieve a just and inclusive society, and ensure that they can fully enjoy human rights.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
