World Leaders, Women Can Work Together To Reach Gender Equality By 2030
Inter Press Service: It’s Time to Step It Up for Gender Equality
Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, executive director of U.N. Women
“…When [world leaders] meet at the United Nations in New York in September, they will have the opportunity to revisit and re-commit to the goals of [the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing]. … We must have an end point in sight. Our aim is substantial action now, urgently frontloaded for the first five years, and equality before 2030. … If the world’s leaders join the world’s women this September; if they genuinely step up their action for equality, building on the foundation laid in the last 20 years; if they can make the necessary investments, build partnerships with business and civil society, and hold themselves accountable for results, it could be sooner…” (3/3).
