I’m delighted to be an International Gender Champion here in the Hague. As the first UK Special Envoy for Gender Equality, I have seen for myself the difference that can be made when we take account of women’s voices, needs, experiences and contributions. Whether women, peace and security, girls’ education, or addressing violence in conflict, we all need to actively hold ourselves accountable to ensure women and girls have a place and a future.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
