Sonke Gender Justice (Sonke) is taking part in the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62), at the United Nations’ (UN’s) headquarters in New York from 12-23 March 2018. We are part of ECOSOC accredited non-governmental organisations, UN entities and member states from all regions of the world gathering for the two-week annual meeting, whose priority theme this year is “Empowering Rural Women and Girls”. As we focus on challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls at this 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women, we invite you to join us in activities that we will be participating in.
Sonke is a South African-based non-profit organisation working throughout Africa. We believe women and men, girls and boys can work together to resist patriarchy, advocate for gender justice and achieve gender transformation.
