The United Nations was established in 1945 to promote international peace and security and to facilitate cooperation among nations in addressing global challenges. According to the UN Charter, the organization’s objectives are to protect human rights, promote sustainable development, uphold international law and deliver humanitarian aid. The UN represents our capacity for global collaboration and commitment to social progress.
In the UN’s 75 years, it has been lead by 9 male Secretary Generals. This December 2021, the UN member states will elect the next leader. We believe it is time for the UN to LEAD BY EXAMPLE in support of gender equality and appoint a woman as the next Secretary General.
HOW CAN THE UNITED NATIONS ADVANCE GENDER EQUALITY, PROMOTE PEACE AND PROTECT HUMAN RIGHTS IF IT DOESN’T LEAD BY EXAMPLE?
AFTER 75 YEARS OF 9 MALE SECRETARY GENERALS, IT IS TIME FOR A WOMAN TO LEAD.
THE UN IS FUNDED BY OUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS. WOMEN PAY TAXES BUT WOMEN"S VOICES AREN’T BEING HEARD.
WE, WOMEN & MEN FROM EVERY MEMBER STATE, SUPPORT THIS GLOBAL PETITION ASKING THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO SELECT A WOMAN FOR THE NEXT SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE UNITED NATIONS.
The THE NEXT UN SECRETARY GENERAL petition to UN MEMBER STATES & GLOBAL PUBLIC was written by LadyBoss Campaign and is in the category Gender Rights and Issues at GoPetition.
