Jennifer Lopez Named Global Advocate for Girls and Women

Jennifer Lopez was named Global Advocate for girls and Women by the UN Foundation. What do you think? Is she a good role model for women? Why? Who would you name?

Level: B1 and above


Jennifer Lopez:

“I am happy to be joining the UN Foundation and eager to lend my voice and ensure that all girls and women are safe, healthy, educated and empowered. Becoming a mother has made me more aware of the struggles of women and children throughout the world. While some progress has been made, there is still a lot more work that needs to be done for gender equality and universal access to medical care.”



have access to = have the opportunity to use something (such as medical care or education)

be aware of something = to know something

be eager to do something = to want to do something very much

empowered (adj) = having the power to do things and make one’s life better

to ensure = to make sure

gender equality = men and women having the same rights
