Geert Bourgeois
Belgium
Flemish Minister-President and Flemish Minister for Foreign Policy and Immovable Heritage
As a White Ribbon Ambassador, and as a husband, grandfather, father, citizen and Minister-President of the Government of Flanders, I have joined the group of billions of people to actively promote gender equality as a fundamental human right. I cannot tolerate violence and its negative consequences for women, their families, the community and the world at large.
