UN logo Announcement Date: March 6, 2014

To support VOW participants’ material and logistical needs as they undertake a study/consultation tour to the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) 58th session focused on the well-being of the world’s women and girls, a commitment undertaken by Canada as a member of the United Nations. And to support the participants follow-up community-based inter-active teachings, in Canada, arising from the experience of the Commission on the Status of Women and its multiple NGO parallel events. All critiqued the state of the UN Millennium Development Goals scheduled to be concluded by 2015 and which failed, from the outset, to identify as a goal the elimination of violence against women and girls.
