United Nations, March 8 (Prensa Latina) The UN Secretary-General (UNSG) António Guterres on Tuesday assured the Covid-19 pandemic recovery is impossible if women's rights and gender equality issues continue to go backwards.

In his International Women’s Day message, Mr. Guterres stressed that it is time to move forward.

The Covid-19 pandemic has kept girls and women out of schools and workplaces, while facing up a rising poverty and violence, Mr. Guterres warned.

Furthermore, the UNSG pointed out women do most of the world’s unpaid but essential healthcare work.

Throughout the world, many women are subjected to violence and abuse, solely because of their gender, and are also the most affected by climate change and environmental degradation, he stressed.

Likewise, Mr. Guterres added, women are scandalously underrepresented in power and business spheres.

In this regard, the UNSG called for guaranteeing a quality education for all girls, so that they can build their desired life and help make the world a better place.

“Gender inequality is essentially a question of power, in a world male-dominated and a culture male-dominated. Power relations must be reversed.”
