NEW YORK, USA-Liberia's Permanent Representative to the United Nations says the Country remains unwavering in its practical commitment to achieving gender parity and upholding women’s rights.

Ambassador Maxwell Kemayah told the UN Security Council during its Open Debate on Women Peace and Security that Liberia's commitment is manifested in as a priority in its Pro-poor Agenda and other institutional frameworks, including the National Gender Policy and the Peacebuilding Plan.

A dispatch from Liberia's Permanent Mission to the United Nations on Monday, October 29, 2018, quotes Ambassador Kemayah as saying that the Government's Pro-Poor Agenda sets ambitious targets to enhance inclusiveness of women and girls to reduce political, social and economic inequalities.

On the UN landmark resolution on Women, Peace and Security 1325, Ambassador Kemayah told the United Nations Security Council that Liberian women were already in peace building, an effort, he said is being exerted by the women of Liberia.

Ambassador Kemayah said:” President George Weah is Liberia's Feminist-In-Chief and He-For-She Champion who continues to prove his unflinching support through the appointment of women in key political positions.”
