International Women's Day 2021

The EU-LAC Foundation salutes all women around the world on this significant date. We commemorate the struggles of women to achieve better working conditions and spaces in society. Together we will achieve an equitable and just future.

The EU-LAC Foundation identified gender equality and advancing the debate on women's rights as a priority theme for its future activities. Therefore, the EU-LAC Foundation joined forces with global women leaders on gender equality issues to reinforce our commitment to contribute to women's rights in the European Union and Latin America, and the Caribbean.

We are pleased to share the messages of the President of the EU-LAC Foundation, Leire Pajín, the Secretary-General of the Ibero-American General Secretariat, Rebeca Grynspan, the Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Carmen Moreno, and Benita Ferrero-Waldner, former President of the EU-LAC Foundation, who are known for their contributions to strengthening women's rights. We are proud to have them join us in spreading our vision.
