Woman for UN Secretary-General

There have been eight male United Nations Secretary-Generals.  The ninth should be a woman.

Women constitute half of the world’s population. To achieve gender equality economically, socially and politically, women must be within top policy-making circles and in leadership positions.

GWI supports the campaign to elect a woman United Nations Secretary-General. #She4UNSG
