PM Justin Trudeau has announced today that he will participate in the eighth annual ‘Women in the World Summit’ to be held in New York City to discuss how women’s economic empowerment accelerates economic growth and the progress still needed to achieve gender equality.

The Prime Minister’s participation in the event is another step to continue advocating women’s rights, and to emphasize the important role we all have to play to advance gender equality.

Highlighting the need of full and equal participation of women around the world, Trudeau said, “We have achieved real progress in advancing women’s equality, especially in the past decades, but there is still a lot of work to be done.”
