Praia, Jul 12 (Inforpress) – The Minister of Education Family and Social Inclusion, Maritza Rosabal, participates in the 73rd session of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, which starts this Thursday and runs until Saturday in Geneva , Switzerland.
In the event, Maritza Rosabal will present and defend the 9th Periodic Report on the status of implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, covering the period 2013-2017.
According to the Government note, the Executive’s programme for the 9th Legislature “assumed as one of the challenges” the resolution of the problems faced by Cabo Verdean women to “the full enjoyment of their rights”, which is why working for gender equality was considered “a national mandate”.
Accordingly, the Strategic Plan for Sustainable Development (PEDS-2017-2021) adopted gender equality as a “cross-cutting axis”.
