Young artists in Europe are being invited to participate in a comic and cartoon competition on gender equality.

The competition was launched on World Day for Social Justice observed in February by UN Women, the UN agency dealing with equality between men and women.

It is part of the campaign by UN Women, entitled "Empowering Women-Empowering Humanity: Picture It!" to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the historic Fourth World Conference on Women that was held in Beijing in 1995.

To find out more about the competition, Derrick Mbatha sat down with Alena Kern, of the UN Women's office in Brussels, Belgium.
