PRESS RELEASE 046
Commemoration of International Women’s Day
04/03/2019

​The Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation, Josep Borrell, accompanied by senior officials of the ministry, the High Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda, accredited Diplomatic Corps and, special guest- writer, scriptwriter and columnist-, Elvira Lindo, participated this morning in the ceremony to launch the events that the Ministry is involved with for the commemoration of International Women’s Day this coming 8 March.
 
During his speech, the minister highlighted the desire to be faithful to society’s outcry for equal rights between men and women.
 
Minister Josep Borrell insisted that promoting gender equality and non-discrimination are hallmarks of Spanish foreign policy, a mirror of our democracy and our State of Law. As such, its promotion is a priority both in bilateral relations and in the multilateral framework.
 
The minister invited the public to check the programme of events regarding International Women’s Day organised by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation, at the Red de Casas network and at the Diplomatic School. Likewise, he took the opportunity to present three videos on the gender approach within Spanish foreign policy.
