Statement by Ms. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women on Women and peace and security in Somalia at the 8350th meeting of the Security Council.

In her briefing, the Head of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, said the Council “must and can stand with the federal and state governments in their efforts at advancing gender equality, often against the objection of powerful clan-based authorities.”

Mlambo-Ngcuka said “the voices of women of Somalia and other minorities must be heard; they must be on the tables where decisions are being taken, because Somalia still remains one of the countries with some of the worst conditions for women and girls.”
