Transformative solutions to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
#UNGA has consistently been the principal multilateral diplomatic setting for global cooperation from climate goals, to health equity, but as inequality worsens, exemplified by the repression of women from Ukraine to Iran; it is clear that the impacts of crises are never gender-neutral, and that there is still much to be achieved regarding women and girls recovery, resilience and representation.
Preventing and ending violence against women and girls while improving equity require women’s leadership, prompt pledges and direct resources devoted to achieving a sustainable future where all women and girls are safe with opportunity. Therefore I am grateful that the newly created United Nations General Assembly Platform of Women Leaders is now established to place gender equality at the forefront of this multilateral arena.
As the 77th United Nations General Assembly comes to a close, I appreciate my Global Office’s attendance, as my full executive and representative emissaries, a delegation that is strengthening collaborations and work with longstanding allies and taking part in complex and timely deliberations, which inform our humanitarian agenda for the coming year.
As we face interlocking challenges, it is crucial for the woman and girl child perspective to be prioritised effectively, decisively and inclusively, and in the Decade of Action, the Wellbeing Foundation Africa is committed to achieving #SDG4 and advocating for the human rights of women and girls around the world, as we embolden them, improve access to services, strengthen laws and policies, to ensure accountability and transparency.
