UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today called on the UN Security Council to "reverse" the negative trend affecting women's rights worldwide, in Afghanistan, Myanmar, Mali or Yemen.

"We must fight and speed up the time for every woman and every girl," he said during a ministerial meeting hosted by Kenya, which holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council in October.

"Women will no longer accept the reduction of their rights, they should not do it anyway, in war-torn countries or elsewhere," she added.

But in Myanmar, Ethiopia, Yemen… In many countries, on different continents, women's rights are being violated or declining, she complained.

"In Mali, after two coups in nine months, the space for women's rights is not just limited, it is closed," said Antonio Guterres.

"In Afghanistan, girls and women are facing a rapid decline in the rights they have gained in recent decades, including their right to a place in a classroom," she continued.

In this country, "the UN remains committed to continuing to uphold and defend the rights of women and girls in all our relations with the authorities," Antonio Guterres promised.

"We will not stop until girls can go back to school and women can not go back to work and participate in public life," he said.
