Video Message from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on International Women’s Day

 

Happy International Women’s Day!

 

As with any of these days, be it Women’s Suffrage or International Women’s Day, there are things to celebrate and there are things that we need to focus on continuing to improve if we are to reach equality for women.

 

But, starting on the positive side, you know, since we’ve been in government, I’m really proud that we’ve done things like – extend paid parental leave, we’re progressing our new pay equity legislation, we now have 50% of our chief executives in the public service [that/who] are women. And of course, we’ve passed important domestic violence legislation, and increased funding for those working in this area. But we know there is more to do.

 

And while we all continue on that journey to do things like – ensure that women can feel safe in their communities, in their homes, in their relationships; that they are paid fairly; that any girl, wherever they are, can aspire to be anything of their choosing without thinking about their gender. While we work towards all of that, let’s also reflect on the things that we have achieved and the amazing women that have helped us achieve them.

 

Happy International Women’s Day!
