Myth and Reality: New Alliances to Challenge Stereotypes and Build Gender Equality Beyond 2015

12-03-2014 - 12-03-2014

All over the world women's rights activists, gender experts, donors, government representatives, and UN staffers are gearing up for this year's Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) which will take place from 10-21 March in New York.
