UN Women’s approach to the Millenium Development Goals

Number 3 in the Millennium development goals is ‘Promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women’, however UN Women believe that gender equality will aid in resolving all of the other issues mentioned in the Millenium Development Goals.

This is a lovely thing to point because all these problems belong to the world and are ours to fix. And women being half the world should contribute just as much as men in resolving these issues. How else to do this than providing women with equal opportunities to try?

I love when influential women (and men) stick up for the rights of all women. She has power, money and she is beautiful, but still she points out the discrimination happening all over the world due to men having in-proportionately more power than women. Issues that are more likely to directly affect other women around the world, much more than herself.
