President, United Nations General Assembly
María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés

As the fourth woman to assume the Presidency of the General Assembly, I dedicate my term to all women and girls: women in politics, women and girls who are victims of violence and those who demand equality in the workplace and access to quality education.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Organize a high-level event on Women’s Leadership on the margins of CSW and promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in all public statements

  • Advocate for gender parity in all fora of the General Assembly through the selection of co-chairs, cofacilitators, panelists and through active outreach to Member States.
