The Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights of Women puts the spotlight this year on the protection of the rights of women and the sea.

According to the committee, these two themes require a change in mentalities and can prove to be complementary,

The UN has reported that 80 percent of people displaced due to climate change are women and girls, the organisers claim.

One hundred public figures, including HSH Prince Albert II and HSH Princess Stéphanie, participated in the creation of a collective work imagined by the artist Anthony Alberti alias Mr One Teas whose the final result will be presented to the public on March 8.

Céline Cottalorda, inter-ministerial delegate for women’s rights said: “All together, we can achieve big projects and unite to defend women and the oceans. This is the message we want to send on March 8.” The unveiling of this work will take place at 16:45, at the Oceanographic Museum to be followed by a series of talks.
