End of Year message from iKNOW Politics expert and UNDP Policy, Gender, Political Process and Peacebuilding specialist Nika Saeedi.
Gender discrimination runs deep. It infects the hearts of both men and women. Since without conscious, deliberate, and sustained effort, no one can remain unaffected by its corrosive influence, both groups must realize that such a problem can neither easily nor immediately be resolved. "Let neither think that anything short of consummate tact, sound initiative, mature wisdom, and deliberate, persistent effort can succeed in blotting out the stain which this patent unkind has left on humanity”. I am very proud of women’s political progress so far but let us aim to do even better in 2015. On this note, I wish you all a happy holiday season.
