The United Nations Secretary Normal issued a dire warning to world leaders : equality between ladies and men on the planet is an more and more distant objective.

Antonio Guterres stated that “girls’s rights are being abused, threatened and violated around the globe” and that “the progress made for many years is disappearing earlier than our eyes”.

“Gender equality is rising extra distant. On the present observe, UN Girls places it 300 years away. Collectively, allow us to push again towards the pushback on girls’s rights, towards misogyny and forwards for girls, ladies and our world,” Guterres stated. 

Closing the main gender hole in innovation and know-how is the main focus of the 67th session of the Fee on the Standing of Girls, which opened at UN Headquarters in New York.

“Digital applied sciences have the potential to speed up progress in the direction of the SDGs (Sustainable Growth Goals) by enabling the creation of latest alternatives for training, well being, agriculture and entrepreneurship, amongst others,” Pauline Tallen, Minister for Girls Affairs of Nigeria.

Over two weeks, members from internationally will look at how gender equality might be achieved within the digital period and promote better inclusivity for girls within the fields of science, know-how, engineering and math
