Ambassador Kosnett’s message for International Women’s Day, March 8, 2019
From music and sports, to politics, and fighting for human rights, Kosovo succeeds when women lead.
On International Women’s Day we celebrate the achievements of women, but at 18%, Kosovo faces one of the lowest female workforce participation rates in the world. When more women work, economies grow.
Men and women must work together to break down the social, political, and economic barriers that keep half of Kosovo’s intellectual power on the sidelines.
I hope you will join me in taking a strong, vocal stance in promoting gender equality, today and throughout the year.
Let’s get to work
