In his message, Niels Scott, Resident Coordinator of the United Nations in Georgia, invited everyone to engage in the Gender Week activities. “Achieving gender equality in every aspect of life will lead us to the world where men and women can equally exercise their choices, such as participating in politics, getting an education, having an income, and living in societies free from violence and discrimination,” Niels Scott said.
