"Denmark is well known for its efforts to advance gender equality – not only in a national context but also through our development cooperation on the ground and in multilateral fora. As Permanent Representative of Denmark to the UN in New York, I often deliver strong messages on Denmark’s commitment to fight for a gender equal world and my colleagues work hard to raise the normative bar in UN negotiations. My pledge as an international gender champion is two-fold – I pledge that Denmark will continue to fight for gender equality and equal rights in the UN and that I myself will practice what I preach by promoting gender equality at the Permanent Mission of Denmark to the UN."
Promote gender transformative approaches in partner organizations’ normative and operational work. Integrate key messages related to women’s rights; sexual and reproductive health and rights; women, peace and security; and combating sexual and gender-based violence, in all relevant work of the Mission.
Encourage the UN System to promote gender balance and work-life balance at all levels, and request regular updates on plans and resources allocated to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment.
