CAP Intl flyers + members' and partners' events

Dear partners and friends,

The 62nd session of the Comission on the Status of Women is taking place at the United Nations headquarters in New York from 12 - 23 March. This year's priority theme is Challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls. 

12 CAP members will be represented at CSW this year. We will take the opportunity to convene and request meetings with strategic partners, as well as organising two public events, one organised by the government of Ireland in collaboration with Ruhama (Ireland) and CAP, and the other co-sponsored by the government of Sweden and CAP (download flyers below). 
Won't be in New York? Join the conversation through live streaming and social media, more information below.

With best wishes,
CAP International Secretariat
