On 9 April 2013, Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the EC, participated in the conference on Women’s Leadership in the Sahel Region with Romano Prodi, former President of the EC and UN Special Envoy for the Sahel, and Lakshmi Puri, acting Head of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women). This event brought together 40 women, civil society leaders of several generations, peace and security experts, peace activists, government officials and gender equality advocates from the Sahel region. Members of the EP, African and European Ambassadors, senior officials from the African Union, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the EU and the United Nations participated in the event. They heard directly from the crisis-affected women from the Sahel region their views and recommendations on women's economic empowerment and political participation, and their role in peace and recovery. This video shows the opening speech given by Catherine Ashton on this occasion.
