The leaders of the most advanced and industrialised economies in the world, the G7, met last weekend to deliberate on key issues relating to international security, economic growth, and climate change. The inclusion of gender equality and women empowerment among the issues to be discussed was a significant and strategic step in the right direction.
Furthermore, the relevance and importance of this issue were accentuated by the appointment of the G7’s first Gender Equality Advisory Council. This body is vested with the responsibility of advising the G7, making clear and realistic recommendations, and of seeking the G7 consensus for the implementation of those recommendations.
