How has the cooperation between UN Women and the series?
This year, when the beijing Declaration and the Beijing platform for action, a full 25 years, and we believe that it is necessary for new partners to find, especially in the private sector, in order to help us build the debate on the equal rights of women. The series will give us the opportunity to reach new women to a discussion of the “Generation equality”, which is the name of the campaign, in this year of UN Women. In connection with the series, we can see that the challenge was to tell the stories and show the diversity of women around the world – both the front and back of the camera.
These 25 years or so, the rights of women far ahead in the steps, as well as slow have driven. No other country has managed such equality in practice. Earlier this year, the UN will make two forums, one in Mexico city, Mexico, in may and the other in Paris in July. What are the goals and objectives, which will be discussed at these events, so to achieve that, eventually, the world will be able to walk to are, to this equality?

These objectives were based on the four actions that generate from the nature of the world, the, collective mobilization, and stimulating conversations, the local and the global, between the generations and the connection of women and girls, to immediate investment, the a great impact on the equality of the sexes, and create actions, the will, the way, made the change, so far.
To achieve In the time you intend to these goals?
The plan is that in five years through these six goals, we are able to accept irreversibly, through joint ventures with leading companies in the public and private, the responsibility for what these projects and activities are determined on the basis of the objectives.
What a message you can be to the boys and girls of the next generation more of the same?
You are killing the generation of gender equality, a generation that has a chance to and get rid of the imbalance. Together, the measures and create a new language that can bring that about the dialogue between the generations which come and line up and change the settings, and patterns of behavior may bring about gender equality in the world.
