Gender equality is the responsibility of all and progress will only be achieved if we all play our part. We need to challenge those who have not been playing theirs.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Make IPU Assemblies ever more gender-responsive, including by: a) Encouraging IPU Members to continuously improve gender equality in participation at Assemblies and ensuring they comply with existing statutory obligations; and b) Implementing a new framework to promote a sexism-free and harassment-free environment at IPU Assemblies starting in 2024.
Pursue efforts to ensure that gender equality is part and parcel of the IPU's work and functioning, with a specific focus on the empowerment of girls and young women as part of our Generation Equality engagement, in particular by: a) Conducting a gender mainstreaming workshop for all IPU programmes of support to parliaments in 2024, including the youth programme; and b) Organizing at least one activity in 2024 with a specific focus on diverse groups of adolescent girls and young women.
