Advocating for the voices of women and girls and furthering our common goal of gender equality remains a central feature of my work as the UK’s first Human Rights Ambassador. I am deeply committed to ensuring that we apply a gender lens to multilateral policy-making. I will continue to work with all of our partners at the Human Rights Council and beyond to shed light on the continuation of gendered norms and discriminatory laws, policies and practices which underpin the lack of progress towards achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls worldwide. I look forward to collaborating with fellow Champions in ensuring we champion and protect women’s and girls’ rights at such a critical time.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
