Clare Hutchinson - What is NATO’s commitment to gender equality?
Women can play a key role in securing peace and security. Ensuring gender equality is also important for the development of our societies. Clare Hutchinson, the NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security, explains more about NATO’s commitment to these issues.
Gender equality is an integral part of all policies, programmes and projects. NATO promotes inclusivity of women across Alliance structures and in national armed forces. Women and men have different perceptions of security, so it is important to ensure women’s active and meaningful participation in decision-making and security institutions.
