An invitation from UN Women’s Executive Director: Join the Online Discussion for CSW 57


For two weeks, from 23 July - 3 August 2012, a dynamic online discussion will bring together civil society organisations and experts who work on issues of violence against women around the world. Their thoughts on best practices, gaps and challenges in this field will be used by the UN Secretary General to shape discussions among members at the 57th Commission on the Status of Women, in March 2013.

Here, UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet outlines the ways in which the Commission will be paving the way for work on gender-based violence going forward, and the critical need for practitioners and experts to contribute at this early stage.
