Lightning Talk | Japan Stage

Host: United Nations Development Programme Supported by United Nations Information Centre, Tokyo

Entrenched gender stereotypes and negative social norms are still pervasive across countries, hindering equal opportunities to access to quality education, healthcare, employment, political participation and decision-making positions. How can we promote bold actions to advance gender equality? Yuriyan Retriever, a prominent Japanese female comedian, argues that our society is shackled by its own stereotypes of what women should look like, and that we are preoccupied with the compulsion of achieving societal standards. Yuriyan’s performance will encourage you to believe in yourselves to turn it around for gender equality!
