Mr Ban Ki-moon’s address for International Women’s Day

Go to this link and you will find the address in the 6 languages of the United Nations.  http://www.un.org/womenwatch/feature/iwd/2010/index.html#video    Here is a quotation from the address:   ” The Beijing Declaration remains as relevant today as when it was adopted. The third Millennium Development Goal – to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment – is central to all the rest. When women are denied the opportunity to better themselves and their societies, we all lose. On this International Women’s Day, let us look critically at the achievements of the past 15 years so we can build on what has worked, and correct what has not. Let us work with renewed determination for a future of equal rights, equal opportunities and progress for all.”  Read the whole text here http://www.un.org/en/events/women/iwd/2010/sg_message.shtml
