Pres. Sirleaf Says SDGsWill Promote Women Empowerment


   

MONROVIA, September 17(LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has told a women empowerment forum that their role in global leadership has been remarkable, noting that women have been at the top of every sustainable leadership across all spheres of society and in all dimensions.

She said to move forward, women across the world need to join forces and place more emphasis on areas of women’s political participation, women in economic empowerment, the digital world, health, and thematic areas which are critical.

According to a dispatch, the Liberian leader made the assertion in her address at the G7 Forum for Dialogue with Women in Berlin, Germany on Wednesday, September 16, which brought together hundreds of women political, academic, managerial, social and economic leaders from across the globe.

President Sirleaf said the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which shortly replaces the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) provides a solid basis for women empowerment and development as the document was very consultative and captures, in a more active way, how the enhancement of women can be promoted globally.

Sharing her experience on how her country overcame the Ebola Virus Disease, the Liberian leader indicated that three key issues were critical in addressing and achieving an Ebola-free Liberia.
She named community engagement, mobilization and participation; sustained
partnership, and leadership.

She said to avoid future outbreaks, community empowerment, development of health systems and institutions, a well-developed and functional health communication system and infrastructural development are not just cardinal but critical.

President Sirleaf thanked the women for the forum which, she said, provides the best opportunity on how women will address future leadership and sustainability issues, as they gather to discuss and share common goals and visions on how the world looks at and treats women issues globally, the dispatch added.
