Thank you so much for your interest in CSW - from speaking with you and other partners, we discovered that the most popular areas people wanted support were:
- Spotlight and amplify your work on gender equality through the Justice For All campaign
- Engage high level partners like The Elders to focus attention on access to justice and women’s rights
To this end, the Justice For All campaign, the Elders and other justice partners are hoping to promote your work to a wider audience and to celebrate your efforts over the course of March. We are looking to create social media infographics about your work, to share any resources that you may have, and to promote these throughout March on Twitter and Facebook. To do this, we are hoping that you can fill in this short form about your work JFA – CSW Questionnaire by February 15th. Please do share pictures and resources as it will help bring to life the work that you do.
We are also open to supporting a webinar on the outcomes of CSW/ work on legal empowerment and gender. If you are interested in hosting a webinar please do let us know and we can further discuss what that would entail.
Finally, we will share information from the form with the Taskforce on Justice who are looking for case studies for a new paper on how increasing access to justice can help overcome the Areas of Concern outlined in the Beijing 25 Platform of Action (the areas of concern are 1. Women and poverty, 2. Education and training of women, 3. Women and health, 4. Violence against women, 5. Women and armed conflict, 6. Women and the economy, 7. Women in power and decision-making, 8. Institutional mechanisms for the advancement of women, 9. Human rights of women, 10. Women and the media, 11. Women and the environment, 12. The girl child).
We will no longer be organising a side event in New York as we did not receive enough interest from other partners to pursue that option. But we have network members who will be speaking at other events across CSW and who will report back from the event on the April JFA Coalition call.
Many thanks again for the work that you do. We hope that drawing attention to your work will help you with your ongoing efforts. If you have any problem completing the form please let me know.
