Gender equality, human rights, health and wellbeing at the core of Women Deliver Conference

Globally recognized Women Deliver Conference on gender equality was organized in Vancouver in early June 2019. Human rights of indigenous women and girls was an important theme at the event, and President Halonen took part in a panel discussion on this matter, in her role as the Alternate Co-Chair of ‘Every Woman Every Child’ steering group. Also, she was a speaker at the Humanitarian Pre-Conference, where women’s and girl’s empowerment and leadership in crisis and conflict situations was a major subject.
