"🌻✨✌🏻 So honoured to be working alongside Nobel Peace Laureates Nadia Murad, @drdenismukwege @ouidedbouchamaoui, and other 🧠 thought leaders, 🌈 creatives and 🌱πŸ’ͺ🏻 campaigners such as @AranyaJohar Assia Benziane @lam_aissa as part of the Gender Equality Council advising the G7 this year during the French Presidency. πŸ’ It's a source of sadness to us all that Nasrin Sotoudeh can only participate in absentia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
πŸ€²πŸ»πŸ’ž Together we’ll be continuing the work of the first Council convened last year in Canada and will be pushing G7 states and others to do more to make gender equality a reality at home and abroad. ⏰ At a time when many might feel a loss of confidence in politicians and the state, it's easy to forget how vital πŸ—³ national governments andπŸ‘©πŸΌ‍⚖️ legislation are in the ⚙️ wheel of factors that create meaningful and lasting change.♟πŸ“° ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❤️🚨 Disengaging is quite simply not an option when in many parts of the world, we're seeing roll-backs πŸ•°πŸ”™ on women and girls' rights and πŸš«πŸ’° cutbacks and corrosions to the basic state services that guarantee these rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
πŸ™‹πŸΌ‍♀️ As a Council, we’ll be recommending ways that states can improve their laws πŸ”ŽπŸ“œ✍🏻 to strengthen women’s rights and will be encouraging them to make new commitments to ensure accountability and access to justice. πŸ—£⚖️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
πŸƒπŸΌ‍♀️πŸ’¨ The clock is ticking though and we have a lot of work to do before the G7 meets in the summer, ⏳☀️ but I'm excited to work alongside so many experts I admire, and to learn from my Council colleagues and the civil society groups that come together as W7. ✊πŸ»πŸ’›
As one of the youngest members of the group, πŸƒπŸŒΈ I hope to bring the perspective of different generations to the table, as well as ensuring that the voices of the many activists, campaigners, women's organisations and movements that I've spent the past years working with andπŸ‘‚πŸ»πŸ’“ listening to, reverberate through the Council's work. 🎢🌼
