Secretary-General's opening remarks at Town Hall Meeting with Women's Civil Society at the Commission on the Status of Women [as delivered]

It is a great pleasure to be here with all of you.
The Town Hall during the Commission on the Status of Women is an important and regular fixture in my calendar. I never miss it.  I welcome this opportunity to meet with women’s organizations and feminist civil society, and to hear your ideas and concerns as I’ve said. 
Let’s be clear.
Gender equality is essentially a question of power.  And power has for millennia been concentrated in the hands of men, to the detriment of all.
