Make no mistake, gender based violence, mostly inflicted on women & girls by men is propagated by male privilege, rooted in power inequalities between men & women. #EddieNdichu & men globally must know better! But society & law must act to end this violation, proactively! #EndGBV

Afghan women are advocating for their equal participation in shaping their country. Today I heard from brave women who are advocating for the full spectrum of women’s rights and calling for their representation in all areas of life. @UN_Women stands with you.

In Somaliland, women are expected not to play sports, and if they must, they should be hidden from male gaze. Despite the social constraints, this all-girls basketball team continues to shine on the court.

No better way to spend my #InternationalDayOfGirlChild than with Sabina & Shiluni, my great friends and other mentees of @NiceLengete Saying YES to the Girl Child is not saying NO to the Boy Child. It’s accepting that girls have unique barriers to realising their potential!
