A note from, Azadeh Khalili, Executive Director for the Commission on Gender Equity
International Women’s Day is a day of reflection and strategizing. We want to think about how much we gain by women’s liberation and gender equity and how much we lose without them.
Today like all the other days, the de Blasio administration stands with all women and girls to oppose all forms of oppression and injustice. We stand with women and girls for quality education, housing and health care. We stand with women and girls to eliminate all forms of violence in our families, communities and places of worship and work. We stand with all women and girls to create better jobs with living wages. Together, we shall overcome.
