Welcome and thank you all for being here.
I would like to share three simple messages with you today.
My first and most important message is one of gratitude: a deep and heartfelt thank you.
I thank you and salute you for raising your voices for women’s equality and dignity around the world.
Every day, you are on the frontlines for fairness – for a more just and decent world.
I have seen the difference you make in every corner of our globe.
You are an inspiration.
As you champion equality, you make the world better for all.
