International Women’s Day 2014

Equality for women is progress for all

“Countries with more gender equality have better economic growth. Companies with more women leaders perform better. Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women enact more legislation on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support. The evidence is clear: equality for women means progress for all.”

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

Women are half of the world’s potential and every single one has the right to a life free from discrimination. I honor the strength, wisdom and compassion of all women.
