Human Rights Council – 35th session

ANNUAL FULL DAY discussion on THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF WOMEN

Thank you Mr. President,

Action Canada makes this statement in collaboration with the Sexual Rights Initiative.

Men and boys can play a crucial role in preventing discrimination and violence against women and girls. They can also be key actors in working alongside women in challenging the harmful gender stereotypes and norms, attitudes and behaviors that reinforce and perpetuate this violence and discrimination.
