Lyric Thompson from the International Center for Research on Women provides a critical perspective of Secretary General Ban Ki Moon’s ‘synthesis report’.

“We must use these principles, as expressed by the Secretary General, as a starting point, through which we can build on proven ways to address the unique needs and rights of women and girls, who, for far too long, have been left off the agenda. And we must continue to ensure that the needs of the most marginalized, including women and girls, are not relegated to the chopping block, but are positively, explicitly and relentlessly affirmed in any global agenda that ensures equality, nondiscrimination, equity and inclusion at all levels.”
