Snapshot of the 56th NGO CSW Forum
As I flip through my notes from today's NGO CSW Forum my handwriting becomes increasingly less legible page after page. The afternoon sessions are unbearable to try and decipher; I attribute this to a major lack of caffeine. I will try again tomorrow but for now I hope this picture can communicate some of what the forum entailed. The Salvation Army, both the auditorium and balcony, was filled with women (and some men!) from all around the world! There were so many amazing women who spoke eloquently about their dedication and investment to the international women's movement, specifically the empowerment of rural women. It was a long day and there is much to say. Keep checking back!
