President Kaljulaid: a society of equal rights must be developed by both men and women working together http://www.president.ee/en/media/press-releases/13760-president-kaljulaid-a-society-of-equal-rights-must-be-developed-by-both-men-and-women-working-together http://www.president.ee/en/media/press-releases/13760-president-kaljulaid-a-society-of-equal-rights-must-be-developed-by-both-men-and-women-working-together "Surveys and studies reveal that equal rights have an important impact on the economy and society in general. The power of legislation alone is not sufficient to change attitudes regarding violence against women and equal rights; men and women need to work together for a more equal society," said President Kersti Kaljulaid today, in Brussels, at the Annual Colloquium on Fundamental Rights, which this year will focus on women's rights in turbulent times.
