Panel Discussion on “Power to Decide: Women, Decision-Making and Gender Equality”
Women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world. They are more influenced over the decisions that affect their lives even when the most conservative societies, feminists and gender advocates have been able to take forward equitable policies and outcomes for women.
In these times, we need to remember how these battles are won. We need the opportunity to cross-pollinate ideas and to hear succinct, inspirational narratives to give us tools, skills, leads, peers to work with and, above all, the confidence to make things happen. Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.
