Commission on the Status of women

The 59th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is taking place from 9 - 20 March. BRIDGE, in partnership with Gender at Work, the Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID) and Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales Argentina (FLACSO), is holding an event to celebrate the winners of the End Gender Discrimination Now competition. Speakers include Tashia Peterson (Malaysia), Momal Mushtaq (Pakistan) and Lilian Soto (Paraguay). Each was a winner in one of the competition's three categories – which had more than 200 submissions – because of their example of an innovative initiative to challenge gender discrimination. The event will take place on Wednesday March 11th, 2.30-4pm, in the Salvation Army Auditorium, 221 East 52nd Street, NYC. You can follow IDS and BRIDGE's experiences at the CSW via our Twitter account and the Interactions website.
