Message from UN Resident Coordinator on International Women’s Day, March 8th

Posted by Green E-Solutions, March 8th, 2016

“In his message for the International Women’s Day, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon calls for action: “The world will never realize 100 per cent of its goals if 50 per cent of its people cannot realize their full potential.  When we unleash the power of women, we can secure the future for all.”

Bhutan already has many change-makers who challenge gender stereotypes through their own action. Yet, we need more than a few brave individuals to stand for gender equality. I urge all of you – women and men, girls and boys, young and old – to be a part of this positive change. I ask you to not only picture an equal world, but to take a giant leap towards it.”

Christina Carlson, UN Resident Coordinator
