Italy’s Massari takes the International Gender Challenge, joins #NoToSexism campaign

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 17 – “In the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, new conflicts and crises are putting women at risk again”, Ambassador Maurizio Massari said today joining the IGC International Gender Challenge on violence against women.

IGC  (International Gender Champions) is a leadership network that brings together female and male decision-makers determined to break down gender barriers and make gender equality a working reality in their spheres of influence. The new network wide Pledge #NoToSexism was adopted last year to stand for zero tolerance of gender-based violence (GBV), sexist attitudes and behaviour in order to tackle some of the deepest and most harmful norms that prevent the equal rights of women and girls being realised.

“In the past 12 months more than one in every 10 women and girls experienced violence by an intimate partner. This year Italy has increased its total financial support to UN Women, UNFPA and UNICEF, while strongly supporting programs to fight female genital mutilation and early child marriages”, said the Permanent Representative of Italy who is also one of the more than 300 International Gender Champions.

“As of January 2023 I will assume the Vice-Presidency of the Board of UN Women“, said Massari: “I will put my role at the service of a strenghtened multilateral action involving all relevant stakeholders. Within the UN we will also monitor the implementation of SDG 5, following last July raccomendations of the High Level Political Forum that Italy co-chaired in view of the SDG Summit next year”.
