Girls’ and women’s rights are human rights, and advancing gender equality is fundamental to ensuring the health, freedom, dignity, and liberty of all people. Promoting gender equality isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do. Supporting the health and rights of all girls and all women creates a positive ripple effect for everyone — lifting up families, societies, and economies. Evidence shows that a gender-equal world is healthier, wealthier, more equitable, more peaceful, and more productive.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
