58th Commission on the Status of Women: Resources for journalists

The Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID [1]) has created a handy section on their website that focuses on the 58th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW 58). It will follow the proceedings of the Commission and keep you up-to-date on official statements, events, news, analysis and resources.

CSW 58 is a two-week meeting (March 10-21, 2014) in New York City. Delegates from United Nations member states and women’s rights advocates and organizations will gather at the UN Headquarters to discuss and evaluate the challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls.

Broadcasters and journalists can use this site as a resource to better understand current progress on gender equality and women’s rights by the Commission on the Status of Women: http://awid.org/News-Analysis/Special-Focus-CSW-58 [1]
