UN Women for Global Female Empowerment
nushu New York special um 14:30 Uhr
„Gender equality is a right. Fulfilling this right is the best chance we have in meeting some of the most pressing challenges of our time. Women are not only more affected by these problems, but also possess ideas and leadership to solve them.”
Diese starken Worte stammen aus der Feder der UN Women, dem globalen Dach für die Gleichstellung der Geschlechter und die Stärkung der Rolle der Frau. UN Women unterstützt Mitgliedstaaten und die Zivilgesellschaften der Länder auf multilateraler Ebene in dem Ziel des Female Empowerment around the globe.
Sei live dabei, wenn Stephanie Dei, National Coordinator in Canada / WE EMPOWER und Bettina Metz, Executive Director UN Women Germany, im nushu breaky international am 25.09. ausnahmsweise um 14:30 Uhr, über ihre Arbeit und Global Female Empowerment berichten.
