Together, we must ensure that the specific needs of migrant women are fully addressed, both during the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
I think one of the reasons why I am very, very happy to stand in front of you is that growing up, after losing my mother, was very lonely and very challenging. Although I have accomplished a lot, for instance being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, the first person that I wanted to talk to about this was my mother, but she wasn’t there. Then I came to New York, and Mama Phumzile was more excited about my Nobel Peace Prize nomination than I was. Ever since then, as she has been going around the world, she has also been telling everyone about me, and I don’t feel motherless anymore as a result of that, because I have women like you, women like Amina Mohammed and people like Dr. Isatou Touray who have paved the way for us to do this work on FGM. Dr Touray started talking about FGM in the Gambia when it was very unfashionable to do that - and no one was doing it. But because of how we saw women like her, we started doing it too. Today she is the Minister of Trade in our country and one of the first females in our country who has got into political office. I want to thank her for that. You have opened so many doors for us.
While so many stories have come to light, many voices are still silenced, many stories remain unheard, many never reach your social media feeds. This year, we’re coming together under the theme, Orange the World: #HearMeToo, to bring to the forefront the voices of women and girls who have survived violence and who are defending women’s rights every day, away from the limelight of Hollywood and the media.
Sport, especially team sport, can be a powerful tool to empower women and girls. Danish activist Emma Holton, a survivor of revenge porn, said, “Teams teach us that we don’t have to be always competing against each other; that solving problems together is actually the way to solve them.”
Many actors in the sport ecosystem are making significant strides to advance gender equality. For example, organizations are developing their sport at the grassroots level for women and girls; implementing gender equality strategies; creating their safeguarding policies; increasing the participation of women in leadership and at all levels of the profession; increasing resource allocation for women’s sports; doing better and more media coverage; marketing free from gender bias and promoting women’s achievements.
Employers have a “duty of care” to their employees working remotely from home and are in a good position to support those who may be affected by domestic violence.
