MOTHERHOOD IS THE BEST GIFT
Women of the World Platform and the undersigning entities declare that:
1.- Motherhood is the best gift not only for a woman and her family but for the whole
society that should rejoice with motherhood, respect it, support it and celebrate it.
Motherhood is a social good that must be protected.
2.- Motherhood is a plus in the personal and professional development of women.
3.- Attachment parenting strengthens the relationship between mother and child,
helping the emotional stability of both. The exclusive dedication – temporary or
permanent – to the family, favors the development of the children and the family
stability so necessary for a prosperous society, and cannot continue to be undervalued.
4.- Motherhood should always be a source of joy for the family, even in adverse
circumstances, and for this it should have the necessary social and political support.
“Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance” (United Nations
General Assembly, 1948). Universal Declaration of Human Rights” (217A [III], Article 25).
Motherhood is the best gift and it should be so for all women throughout the world and
in all circumstances. It is therefore necessary to provide the social, economic and
political means to ensure that
✓ Motherhood is not a reason for employment discrimination
✓ Motherhood and dedication to the family does not imply discrimination or loss
of social recognition.
✓ It is not a reason for illness or death
✓ It does not entail a hindrance in professional life or a reduction in salary, if it is
not due to a choice to reduce the working day.
✓ Is not forced or a reason for effective loss of freedom within the family
✓ Is not the object of hire or purchase
The Women of the World Platform and the undersigned entities consider that in order
to achieve these objectives, the Geneva Consensus Declaration (2020) is a correct
roadmap for all societies respectful of women, their dignity, their identity, their
development and health.
We therefore call on all countries that have not yet done so to join this Declaration,
which has already been signed by 35 nations around the world.
