Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Under-Secretary-General and UN Women Executive Director

The event will feature a panel discussion with Emmy-award winning series, “The Handmaid’s Tale” producer, Bruce Miller and costume designer Ane Crabtree, as well as musical performances. The commemoration event will be moderated by Sherwin Bryce-Pease, UN Bureau Chief of South Africa Broadcasting Corporation, and President of the UN Correspondent’s Association 2017.
