ReliefWeb: VP Harris Addresses Gender Equality Forum Highlights Existing, Upcoming U.S. Commitments to Advance Gender Equality

ReliefWeb highlights the Women’s Refugee Commission’s statement in response to US Vice President Kamala Harris’s address at the Generation Equality Forum.

In response to Harris’ statement and a White House fact sheet outlining existing and upcoming U.S. commitments, Gayatri Patel, vice president of external relations at the Women’s Refugee Commission, issued the following statement:

“The United States has the platform and the responsibility to lead for change and meaningfully advance gender equality. This means making commitments that break down barriers for women and girls globally, including the millions of displaced women, girls, and youth caught in humanitarian crises who grapple with gender-based violence and limited opportunities for economic empowerment, education, and quality health care.
