dc.descriptionAfrican Ministers responsible for Gender and Women's Affairs from the Africa region, experts, the African Union Commission, Regional Economic Communities, United Nations Agencies, and Civil Society Organizations met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 6 and 7 February 2014 to prepare for the fifty-eighth session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) on the priority theme: "Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for women and girls." Ms. Ngone Diop, Chief of Gender at UNECA, speaking on behalf of Dr. Carlos Lopez, Under-Secretary-General and Executive Secretary of UNECA, explained that economies across the continent suffer from rampant Gender Inequality. "Studies indicate that the gender gap costs Africa 255 billion US dollars annually. We must understand that it is not a favor to women but their right. And, It is not only a right, but it is the right and smart thing to do", she concluded.en
