I am truly glad to celebrate all the great steps we have taken so far towards gender equality and women’s rights. As European Commissioner for Regional Policy I am speaking to you from a position that would have been unthinkable for my mother or my grandmother. And yet, my thoughts are today with those women who still see their dreams shattered by discrimination, violence, lack of access to education, and ultimately lack of choices.
