Australia appoints inaugural Global Ambassador for Women and Girls

Australia will be at the forefront of global efforts to promote the
role of women and girls with the appointment of Penny Williams
as Australia’s first Global Ambassador for Women and Girls. According to a statement by Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Ms Williams’ role will ensure the
needs of women and girls are properly represented in Australia’s
overseas development program and in foreign policy more broadly.

The Ambassador’s priorities include co-ordinating and promoting
Australia’s work to eradicate violence against women, improving access
to services for women, the protection of women and girls in conflict
zones and increasing the representation of women in leadership roles.
