On Women’s Day 2006, Kofi Annan said, “the world is ready for a woman Secretary-General.” However in its 60 year history no woman has yet led the United Nations.
“Why is Kofi Annan not a woman?” aims at exploring gender and leadership issues within the United Nations and the advancements made so far within this area.
The film was followed by a discussion with Osnat Lubrani, Director of the UNIFEM Brussels office.
