Event description

Description

In recent decades, the Americas has adopted countless binding legal agreements, political statements and declarations of commitment that provide strong and unequivocal policy and regulatory support to the protection and guarantee of women's rights. On paper, women enjoy a broad range of rights under conditions of equality with men.

But the persistent gap between women’s rights on paper and women’s rights in practice is one the biggest obstacles to sustainable development, effective democratic governance and human security. Join our high-level panel of key women leaders of the Americas for a look at some of the main achievements and challenges to the full enjoyment of women's rights and to celebrate the 90th annivesary of the Inter-American Commission of Women.
