UNITED NATIONS, Mar 6 2013 (IPS) - On Sunday, Mar. 3, nongovernmental organisations working on women’s rights gathered in New York City for the annual meeting of the NGO Committee on the Status of Women.
In line with the theme of the 57th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) that will take place Mar. 4-15 at the United Nations, the central focus of this year’s NGO Committee was strategies to address violence against women.
Nearly 20 speakers, including civil society, diplomats and high-level representatives of UN Women, discussed trafficking of women and girls, the role of men, the best practices for prevention and the use of social media to spread campaigns and fight violence against women.
