Posted by Women Thrive Alliance

Women Thrive is a strong supporter for a feminist UN Secretary General. With the Security Council’s support behind António Guterres, the former Portuguese prime minister and former UN high commissioner for refugees, the next UNSG will be a man.

Women Thrive has worked with gender equality advocates from around the world and supported several campaigns to try and secure the nomination of a feminist female candidate for the position. While we are disappointed that a female candidate was not supported to replace Ban Ki-Moon, it is our hope that Mr. Guterres will be a champion for gender equality.
