For over a century, women have been taking to the streets to demand their rights, on issues ranging from employment, to votes, to reproductive health.
In 2017, why do women still need to march? On the occasion of International Women’s Day we will debate the advances, gaps and challenges in realising women’s human rights and gender equality with our guests:
Kate Gilmore, United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights
Patricia O'Brien, Permanent Representative, Mission of Ireland to the United Nations in Geneva
Dr. Arzu Rana Deuba, Member of Parliament, Nepal
Felipe Jaramillo Ruiz, Ph.D. student, The Graduate Institute, Geneva
Moderator: Philippe Burrin, Director, The Graduate Institute, Geneva.
Organised with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
