Dates & Data “Gifts of Giving ” Edition Dec 2017
CFUW will be sending a delegation to attend the sixty-second session of the Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW62) next March 2018.
This year’s priority theme: Challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls.
In preparation for this high-level meeting, CFUW wishes to collect data on its members’ perception of challenges and opportunities for rural women in Canada as well as on the experience of members living in rural settings.
The results will enable us to better prepare for this meeting and promote commitments from United Nations Member states that illustrate our members’ vision.
