UNITED NATIONS: 55th session of the Commission on the status of Women(CSW)

The fifty-fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women is taking place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 22 February to 4 March 2011. Representatives from Member States, UN entities, and ECOSOC-accredited non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from all regions of the world will attend the session. There will be a number of activities, including interactive dialogues and panels, during the two-week session. I’m in particular excited about the track panel discussion on science and technology for women and young girls- it is one of the topic that is dearly to my heart. Since i’ll be missing this year attendance, but thanks to the live webcast! so, i’ll be following the story from afar. A group of leaders from all over the world will be in discussion over access and participation of women and girls to education, training, science and technology, including for the promotion of women’s equal access to full employment and decent work.
