Women Deliver Opens in Vancouver, Canada with Ethiopia’s President in Attendance

By Elias Meseret for DireTube from Vancouver, Canada

Heads of state from four nations, including Ethiopia, sat side-by-side young leaders and grassroots advocates as delegates from more than 165 countries kicked off the Women Deliver 2019 Conference. The Women Deliver 2019 Conference, which is the world’s largest conference on gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women, has kicked off today with more than 8,000 world leaders, influencers, advocates, academics, activists, and journalists gathered in Vancouver.

1,400 youth delegates from 139 countries are attending the Women Deliver 2019 Conference, where every plenary program and most concurrent feature a young person.

The four day conference is expected will focus on power, and how it can drive – or hinder – progress and change; and how societies must redefine the concept of ‘power’ and use it as a force for good.

Organizers of the event stated while the Women Deliver 2019 Conference and global dialogue will place a special emphasis on power, the conference will also offer solutions to fill the gap on a vast array of issues crucial to gender equality: economic empowerment, women and the environment, nutrition, education, political participation, preventing gender-based violence, health, including sexual and reproductive.
