March 8, 2017, Senator the Hon Wendy Phipps,Minister with Responsibility for Health, Social Services, Gender Affairs and Community Development:
“Much has been achieved re: the advancement of women’s rights over the past century, including the pursuit of education, decent work in the global marketplace, and women in leadership – be it in industry, trade, politics, science and technology, academia, social development or religion. Yet, there is still a long way to go to achieve gender parity by the UN’s target year of 2030.”
