    Promoting the Gender Dimension in Human Development


    Editorial by Montse Rafel – Director of Dianova International

    Giving women and girls the same opportunities as men is not only a moral duty but also a necessity. It is a moral duty, because no one can accept that half of humanity be still relegated to menial tasks under the control of males, as women are in too many countries. It is necessary because only through women's and girls' access to quality education can countries and communities achieve their full development.

    “I’ll do my Best to Make my Dreams Come True” – A Testimony by Mercedes


    Mercedes Acevedo lives in a rural community in Nicaragua. At the age of 20, she is exceptional. In a country where     a mere 7 per cent of rural women complete secondary education, Mercedes is now attending secondary school and is eager to pursue further university studies. Mercedes was offered the possibility of entering secondary school through Dianova Nicaragua. And this has changed her life.

    On March 12th, she came to New York to share her life experience during a side event – ¨Education, Gender and Maternal Health: Social and Public Goods¨ – organized by Dianova and other partner organizations in the margins of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. She was able to give her speech in the English language.
