CEO, Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens
Monika  Froehler

Gender equality must become a reality within my lifetime. Ideally all over the planet. Otherwise we are only seeing half the sky. Whatever I can contribute to that, I will attempt to do. And it is good to know so many likeminded supporters in this endeavour. Girls´ education and reproductive rights are therefore naturally very close to my heart. Gender equality is not an option, it is a mandate to empower others and let them shine.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
