IGC: Re-launch: I Say No to Sexism. What do you say?

The campaign under the slogan “I say no to sexism. What do you say?” originates from former UN Geneva Director-General Michael Møller, who in 2017 made it his commitment to launch a campaign to counter casual sexism at UN Geneva. This campaign consisted of awareness-raising, outreach activities and actions to encourage and empower staff to tackle casual sexism in their working environment.

Today, this campaign is being relaunched to support implementation of the IGC Gender-based Violence Pledge, a commitment for “Champions to uphold IGC’s core values of creating and maintaining safe workplaces and treating every person with respect and fairness; and to accelerate collective action towards the elimination of all forms of genderbased violence within Champions’ spheres of influence”. The campaign is also a part of the IGC Secretariat’s commitment to the Generation Equality Forum Action Coalition theme on gender-based violence.

OHCHR : Annual discussion on the integration of a gender perspective throughout the work of the Human Rights Council and that of its mechanisms

The effective exercise of the right to freedom of opinion and expression is essential for the enjoyment of other human rights and freedoms, and crucial for women’s empowerment and the achievement of substantive gender equality. Despite the many gains for women and girls and people with diverse gender identities in the realization of this right, they continue to face structural, systemic and legal barriers. When they are additionally subjected to intersectional discrimination, these barriers are exacerbated.
