International Women's Day 2023 - DigitAll: Innovation and technology for gender equality
The campaign to reach gender equality in the world is an every day pursuit – but one that takes particular significance today, on International Women's Day.
This year’s theme is “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality” and it acknowledges the role technology plays in the gender divide – unfortunately, the digital world can benefit men and boys more than women and girls. Women must be treated as technology creators and decision-makers and included equally in the design, development, and deployment of technology to better meet their needs.
The Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of UNMIK Caroline Ziadeh commends the many positive developments in women’s rights over the past year in Kosovo and around the world and she admires the courage of all women's rights activists striving for equality.
“A gender-equal world is for the benefit of all of society! Let’s work together to make the planet fairer for all, both on- and offline,” she said.
