UNCSW - the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) is scheduled from March 10 - 24th in New York City. We will have a CFUW delegation of about fourteen attendees, both CFUW members and several members of Women Graduates-USA who will join us. The theme for this 58th Session of the CSW is "Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls." CFUW will be presenting a workshop or parallel session with Women Graduates-USA, titled "Universal Primary Education by 2020: In Peril for Afghan Girls?" led by Hally Siddons and Leila Metcalf of CFUW Ottawa. CFUW is also preparing to submit an oral statement on the theme to read into the record at UNCSW. The delegate team will be working with other Canadian women's groups, the IFUW delegation, and others, on the advocacy front, attending as many formal sessions, side events, and parallel sessions as possible, and we will be reporting back to Clubs on the experience.
