- Created: 04 March 2013
Elimination and Prevention of all Forms of Violence Against Women and Girls is the priority of the United Nation's Commission on the Status of Women's (CSW57) 57th annual meeting from 4 to 15 March 2013. Global Network of Women's Shelter (GNWS) members from Europe, Africa, Asia, North America, South and Latin America are presenting and participating in critical CSW57 discussions focusing on two key areas:
- Prevention of violence
- Provision of support services and responses to survivors of violence
The voices and leadership of women's shelters, refuges and centres in these high-level discussions and decisions is crucial to the empowerment of women and girls living with and surviving violence. This is because CSW is a key global policy-making body on gender equality and the advancement of women.
