ImageWOMEN”S FREEDOM FORUM REPORT ON THE

58th COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN FORUM

UNITED NATIONS, New York, New York  - March 8-21, 2014

By Lynn Dykstra, WFF Representative of the UN-DPI

 

 

Women’s participation in the Annual UN-CSW Forum lifts the energy level of New York City to great heights.  International women leaders of grass roots organizations; NGOs, governments and youth-participant future leaders meet across political and cultural divides to bring unity to the women’s movement, world-wide; emphasizing “Equality, Development and Peace.”

 

The Women’s Freedom Forum (WFF) representatives participate in the UN-CSW events each year.   We continue to be encouraged by the steps that we and others take to help women move forward toward equal human rights.  WFF works tirelessly by the day, by the hour, by the minute to demand and assure that women in the Middle East and other countries have educational, economic and human rights afforded them, as is the right of every human being on this earth.

Commemorating International Women's Day 2014 

Today, people around the world are joining together to show their support for women’s equality. On this day, WFF celebrates current achievements and sets goals to work harder to achieve women’s equality.

TOGETHER WE MUST BREAK THE GLASS CEILING ONE AFTER THE OTHER.

Yesterday at a UN Event commemorating International Women’s Day, Hillary Clinton said, "Just as women's rights are human rights, women's progress is human progress. For all the achievements made, this is the big unfinished business of the 21st century.”

The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women starts on March 10th with the theme of “Equality for women is progress for all”.

Help spread the word about amazing examples of women and girls around the world and share  your thoughts on our facebook and twitter today!

 

Empowering Girls and Women in the Digital Age

ImageDiplomatic Courier - A woman in Nigeria teaches young girls to blog so they can “share their thoughts to the whole world.” Thousands of miles away in California, a teenage girl uses the internet to raise funds for United Nations programs that benefit marginalized adolescent girls in developing countries.

These examples show how information and communications technologies (ICTs) enable girls and women to share their voices and connect with their communities, with policymakers, and with each other.

This is a positive development for girls and women. It is also a positive development for the world: When girls and women are empowered, they lift up their families, communities, and countries.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, let’s also focus on how we can advance the rights and well being of girls and women worldwide. Technology must be part of this discussion.
