I acknowledge all the traditional countries that we gather on today, and pay my respects to our elders everywhere, past, present and emerging. In particular in this session on Gender Equality, and what we can do to achieve it, I acknowledge all the women of the world, and our Indigenous women—the First Mothers of the earth.
