Provisional Agenda for CSW now out & Canada's side events

You can now access the provisional agenda for UNCSW at the following link: http://www.un.org/womenwatch/daw/csw/57sess.htm.



The emerging issue for consideration will be: Key gender equality issues to be reflected in the post-2015 development framework. Although specific details in terms of date, time and speakers are still being finalized, Canada will be hosting 3 side-events at the UN Headquarters during the first week of CSW on the following three topics:



     Forced marriage and violence committed in the name of “honour”,

     Engaging men and boys in preventing violence against women and girls; and,

     The role of the healthcare system and doctors in responding to violence against women.


Sounds interesting!
