President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović closed out her stay in New York with a special conference marking a quarter century of the work of the Special UN Rapporteur on Violence against Women. "These past few days we spoke about women in politics, representation in politics, in business and so on. However, the number of women in high politics will not stop violence against women unless we all get involved and begin to treat it as a societal problem, meaning all of us, and not a problem for certain families and the social services that deal with this problem."

The mandate has been led by Croatian diplomat Dubravka Šimonović since 2015.
