Gender equality is a matter of partnership. It requires burden- and power sharing, breaking free from stereotypes and the will to adapt the narrative so that men see themselves as allies who benefit from an equitable society just as much as women do.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Through Switzerland’s co-chair of the Informal Expert Working Group on WPS, I commit to mainstream the WPS agenda and to support the role and protection of women civil society representatives in relevant discussions during Switzerland’s term in the UN Security Council.
As a member of the PGA’s Advisory Board on Gender Equality, I commit to actively participate and contribute to the work of this Board towards achieving tangible outcomes for gender equality during the 77th Session of the UNGA.
