New York, 23 July 2010 - ECOSOC Interviews Series - Featuring Geena Davis, Academy Award-winning actor and Founder, See Jane, this short interview stresses the importance of gender equality and women's empowerment. Ms. Davis says that "It is important for all of us to embrace the pace that we need to take in improving the status of wom...en around the world, that it is an urgent, urgent problem. As Martin Luther King said: We must not take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. We have to get there; we have to jump to the next level".
Leaders from the private sector and civil society met in February 2010, and discussed with government representatives the challenges of ending violence against women and girls, the economic empowerment of women, and joined forces to bring together governments with private and philanthropic organizations at the Special United Nations ECOSOC Event, "Engaging Philanthropy to Promote Gender Equality & the Economic Empowerment of Women".
