I am glad to be an International Gender Champion and to contribute to the collective effort of breaking down gender barriers. The elimination of discrimination against women and girls is a key priority for Mexico. We make every effort to mainstream gender equality in all the work we do across international organizations in Geneva.
Gender equality is not only a human rights matter. It is also an essential element of democracy and global justice. It is part of the solutions to the challenges that the international community is facing, and a precondition for more just, secure and sustainable societies.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
