The Embassy and several parts of the U.S. Government participated in the conference, which focused on women’s rights, inclusion of women in all aspects of society and investing in girls and women’s education to make countries more prosperous and stable.

The conference had about 6,000 attendees. That included around 2,000 Organizations from over 150 Countries. Some 1,200 young people, 500 Journalists, private sector representatives from multiple industries as well as UN Agencies and government representatives, including ministers and parliamentarians from over 25 countries.
