Kamala Harris is ready to form her United Nations(UN) debut as US vice President next week where she is going to address the organisation on the promotion of gender equality and empowerment of girls .During a statement, America’s ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield said that Harris would be taking the stage at the virtual 65th Commission on the status of girls on March 16. Harris, who created history by becoming the primary vice chairman of the US is now tasked with tackling various challenges including violence and gender-based pay divide.

In addition, Washington will also join a UN "group of friends to eradicate violence against women and girls", the diplomat said, although the Trump administration made a dramatic push for the cause, be it under his successor That country. Take the number one role to combat sexual and gender-based violence around the world and involve more women in peace negotiations internationally.

Since taking office, Harris has been blatantly vocal about female rights and gender equality. She recently told the ecu leaders to “build a world that works for women”. Addressing the ecu Parliament to mark International Women’s Day, she thanked all the lady who had been performing on the frontline amidst the catastrophic pandemic. In her vehement speech, she noted the disparities between the genders and also spoke about the issues women face.

Harris took to Twitter a few hours before his historic oath, when he was the vice president of the US, and showed his feminist side by paying tribute to his mother and every woman She encountered. The clip, which may be a montage of girls who influenced Harris, played along side her words from her first speech after winning the November election. within the video, Harris said that she is brooding about her and about the generations of girls , including Black, Asian, White and Native American, who have paved the way for her to become the primary woman vice chairman .

The Trump administration also cut funding in 2017 for the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) because it said it "supports, or participates within the management of, a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization." The United Nations said that was an inaccurate perception.
