We need the best political leaders, people with best ideas, most creative and most driven to win the best possible future.
Not only those who suffer from injustice fight against it, but also those who understand it.

It is my aim to continue to integrate a gender perspective in the sound management of chemicals and waste, and to assist the Parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions to do the same.
Gender equality will only be attained by addressing inequalities and discrimination in law and in practice.
Make sport a powerful platform to foster gender equality and empower women is a top priority for the International Olympic Committee.
