Department of Global Communications promotes Gender Equality in March

In March, as the United Nations celebrates International Women's Day, the Department of Global Communications's editorial package focuses on SDG 5 - Gender Equality.  

The content, gathered from across the UN System, includes the UN Secretary-General's message for the Day, an interview with former UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador Annie Lennox, and information on the International Labour Organization's new report, A Quantum Leap for Gender Equality. 

You will also find links to digital assets, think pieces on women's economic empowerment, and impact stories on women and girls who are breaking down barriers to create a better world for everyone. 

Below are some highlights from our March edition. To access the full package, go to: http://bit.ly/sdgmediacompact

The hashtag for International Women’s Day is #WomensDay and for the SDGs is #GlobalGoals.

Next month, we will focus on Goal 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth - ahead of the ECOSOC Youth Forum (8 to 9 April). 

Please feel free to use the content on your platforms and share it widely with your networks.   

Wishing you a productive March!
