“I am honored and humbled to join this group of accomplished leaders who can help New York City become a place where all people enjoy their human rights and live with equality, dignity and justice,” she says. “Locally and globally, we stand at a tipping point where deep culture change is within our grasp, and I believe that New York can lead the way. Together, we can build a city—and a world—where homes and streets are safe, relationships are healthy, and opportunity is equal for all.”

The Office of the Mayor announced the establishment of the New York City Commission on Gender Equity to achieve economic mobility and social inclusion of all New Yorkers, particularly women and girls, and ensure their public safety. That’s great news in and of itself, but it gets better: this diverse group of leaders on the commission, spanning public and private industries, non-profit organizations, and academia, includes Breakthrough founder, president, and CEO Mallika Dutt.

We would also like to congratulate all of the highly accomplished and respected members of the Commission: Julissa Reynoso, Anne Hess, Radhika Balakrishnan, Cecilia Gaston, Tiloma Jayasinghe, Taina Bien-Aime, Abigail Disney, Jennifer Buffett, Celeste Smith, Yrthya Dinzey-Flores, Silda Palerm, Gloria Steinem (Honorary), and Janet Dewart Bell (Honorary).

“New York is a city spiritually defined by inclusion and diversity, and it’s imperative that all New Yorkers, regardless of sex, gender or sexual orientation, are treated equally,” said Mayor de Blasio. “This historic new commission will help us use every tool we have to create a truly equal city for all New Yorkers.”

Mallika was interviewed at DNA Info. You can read the complete interview here. You can read a snippet below.

Why only focus on women/gender issues?
Gender intersects with all issues; it is not a category by itself. It is affected by everything and affects everything. Violence against women is also the largest pandemic in the world. I believe that the first place that human being create an ‘Us vs Them’ attitude is with women. The first objectification happens with women. Kids grow up watching the inequality in homes. There is a direct link between how we treat women and how we treat other marginalised communities. This creates a pathway for many other issues to be addressed.

Evidence shows that with the right kind of commitment to key values and principles, we can make this happen within a generation. Together we can create a culture in which all people are safe, respected, and able to be their best selves.
