The sixty-seventh session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW 67) will assess as its priority theme, “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.” CSW 67 provides a unique opportunity to identify recommendations that will allow for a more inclusive digital evolution to address protection of women and girls who have been historically marginalized. The objective of this session is to provide a platform to share and discuss protection and reporting measures that promote the voices and leadership of women and answer the call for recommendations by the office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Attendees will have an opportunity to offer their ideas regarding how to advocate for women and girls in the context of United Nations-related initiatives.
