Women with Disabilities

[16days discussion] CSW Joint Statement - Signatures requested by 15 Nov, 9am EST

Dear Fellow Activists,

With the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence less than two weeks away and the Commission on the Status of Women in March 2013, the Center for Women's Global Leadership is excited to work alongside women's and human rights organizations worldwide to increase attention about gender-based violence and call governments to respond, protect, and prevent such violence.

We have drafted the attached statement to encourage UN Member States to prioritize demilitarization, eliminate gender-based violence worldwide, and fulfill their human rights commitments. We would love to submit this statement with your support. If you would like to endorse the statement, please send email to 16days@cwgl.rutgers.edu the full name of your organization no later than 9:00am EST on Thursday November 15th. Please note that the UN requires signatories to have ECOSOC status.

We look forward to hearing from you as we work to promote a more peaceful world.
