CSW 57 Written Statement and call for Advocacy

CSW (Commission on the Status of Women) 57 Written Statement and call for Advocacy

Dear all,

Soroptimist International is pleased to release the official written statement for CSW57, taking place in New York in March 2013.  The statement is available on our website – click HERE to read.

As we have done in previous years, we have also developed pre-session advocacy tools, in the form of a briefing, a lobbying letter, and a lobbying postcard.  We encourage everyone to utilise these tools to ensure that government officials are made aware of the SI position and advocacy “asks” before CSW begins.  The briefing document contains a link to the global directory of national mechanisms for gender, so it’s easy to look up the name(s) and address(es) for the target government official(s) for your country. The SI pre-session tools can be found HERE and HERE.

If you have any questions, please email Anna or Hilary.

Many thanks and good luck lobbying!

President Siew Yong
