A promise is a Promise

The 57th session of the Commission on Status of Women (CSW) takes place in New York from 4th – 15th March 2013. During the two weeks of discussions, governments will focus on preventing and ending violence against women and girls. Expectations are high and rightly so.  They are founded in a conviction that human rights belong to all and in a shared vision of a world free of violence against women and girls. They are guided by collectively agreed promises and the voice of victims and survivors.
