The Key to an Inclusive Recovery? Putting Women in Decision-Making Roles

Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka pounds the table for women and girls

The Key to an Inclusive Recovery? Putting Women in Decision-Making Roles New York Times (NYT) "As the world sketches out post-pandemic plans, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the head of U.N. Women, explains why having more women in leadership positions could lead to better results. As she speaks, it’s like a drumbeat — how girls need to complete their education, how they need access to technology, how child marriage and pregnancy will set a girl on a path of economic hardship. You can hear it as she points to girls who are trafficked — “you know they are lost to society and their rights will be violated in unimaginable ways.” And you can hear it as she speaks of the cycles of violence, abuse and poverty that trap women and girls for life. If they raise their voices, the outcomes may be more dangerous than if they stay silent." (Photo: Peace Research Institute Oslo - PRIO/flickr, CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)
