The world needs more women leaders and men standing up for gender equality, UN chief Antonio Guterres has said while asserting that the empowerment of women is about breaking structural barriers. "It is true, I am a man, but we need all men to stand up for womens empowerment. Our world needs more women leaders. And our world needs more men standing up for gender equality," Guterres told the Commission on Status of Women (CSW), which began its annual session here yesterday. The CSW is the principal global intergovernmental body dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.
