UN Women .

With the UN for women's rights

I attended the UN Women debate, in New York, on equal rights for women. Today women still face many discriminatory practices that undermine their potential. I believe that women’s economic empowerment is key for enabling their rights and thus transforming society.

It is with great satisfaction that I see that for the United Nations this is a fundamental issue and it is inseparable from its vision for the world in the coming years.
