Online Discussion: Advancing women’s rights through social media

Are you looking for something to do between February 11 and 20? 

Here is something: an online discussion on how to advance women’s rights through social media. It’s organised by many associations, among which my dear friends at World Pulse and the Guardian. The description of the event reads:

Wikigender and partners would like to invite you to participate in a new online discussion on “Advancing women’s rights through social media: which strategies?” from 11-20 February 2015.

With the support of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and in partnership with UN Women, the OECD Development Centre is organising a side event during the 59th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) on “Advancing women’s rights since Beijing: making women’s voices heard in the post-2015 agenda through social media”. In the lead up to the event, Wikigender is running an online discussion to discuss effective strategies for advancing women’s rights through social media. The ensuing report will synthesise the discussion and be distributed at the event.
