Inter Press Service: Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture It!
Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, executive director of U.N. Women

“…A billion women will enter the world economy in the next decade. With equal opportunities, their impact on our future prosperity will be a global game-changer. We can and must turn this picture to reality. Right now, every country is working to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, and to define a new global development plan. … Today we launch a Beijing+20 campaign that will focus on progress, highlighting champions and effective work being done for gender equality. … The campaign calls upon leaders and ordinary people alike to recommit and act to turn the vision of the Beijing platform into reality…” (5/19).
