We cannot afford to wait another 286 years for women to have the same legal rights and protections as men. I share the UN Secretary-General’s outrage towards the current state of gender inequalities when he says “We must insist on gender equality, everywhere, now”. While we pursue this cause, we need to make sure that “male allies” are onboard. We can and must work to make sure that gender inequalities are a thing of the past. To this aim, I renew my full commitment to achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls, especially by focusing on inclusive and equitable quality education as our leverage to invest in women and girls.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
