PDF File Size: 418 KB | Download   
Today, on International Women’s Day, we join governments and activists across the world to
celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries, communities and families. We take a moment to celebrate the many achievements, to take stock of the remaining gaps and challenges, and to call for change. This March 8 th we strive for the future we want, Planet 50-50 by 2030 – the expiry date for all forms of gender inequality, discrimination and violence, the goal set in the context of the Political Declaration adopted by the 59th Session of Commission on Status of Women. The new global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) hold the promise to transform our world for the better. A world where a girl can truly be and do whatever she wants, and women are able to participate equally in leadership across all areas of society. In 2030, there should be more women presidents, more women CEOs of companies, more women presidents of universities, more women local governance leaders, more women generals in the army, more women chiefs of police, more women political party leaders. Reaching planet 50-50 is anything but business as usual. We need transformation to overcome barriers to creating the future we want.
