UN Chief: Women's inequality should shame us allUnited Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres argued passionately for women's equal rights across the globe in a speech to The New School in New York this week, calling for the end of “default male thinking.”

"This discrimination harms us all," he said. "Just as slavery and colonialism were a stain on previous centuries, women’s inequality should shame us all in the 21st. Because it is not only unacceptable; it is stupid.

"Only through the equal participation of women can we benefit from the intelligence, experience and insights of all of humanity," he continued. "Women’s equal participation is vital to stability, helps prevent conflict, and promotes sustainable, inclusive development."
