[The Elders Series] Global Leaders on Ending Violence Against Women and Girls
[The Elders Series] Global Leaders on Ending Violence Against Women and Girls
Ban Ki-moon, former UN Secretary-General, joins hosts Mary Robinson and Hazami Barmada to discuss the persistent, global injustice that is violence against women. 1.3 billion women and girls around the world—equivalent to the entire combined populations of North America and Europe—have experienced violence at some point in their lives. This has significant political, economic, and cultural consequences. In this episode, global leaders unpack this critical issue and address what is needed to end violence against women and girls. Together, we explore how to tackle this injustice and answer the questions: How does increasing access to justice better safeguard women’s rights? Why is feminist leadership vital in advancing gender equality? And what role do men play in ending violence against women and in challenging misogyny? -- Episode speakers: Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Founder of UN Women and Deputy Chair of The Elders; Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and Chair of The Elders; and Hazami Barmada, Activist & Founder of the Humanity Lab Foundation. -- This special series of Finding Humanity is a production of Humanity Lab Foundation and Hueman Group Media, in collaboration with The Elders.
