FOLLOW UP TO THE COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN

CSW followupHaving succeeded in getting an outcome document, those who worked so hard to influence language protecting girls from violence are determined to create a method which will encourage implementation and monitoring of key policies suggested in the document. At the first two meetings, we spoke with  girls from Papua New Guinea, Moçambique, and South Africa to identify a process reaching youth at the grass roots level. Creating awareness about violence against girls which arises in local communities would lead to looking at causes and agreeing upon practical responses. Some issues which are being considered are: discrimination against girls in the matter of schooling, attacks on girls on the way to school or in school, rape, leadership training for girls, self esteem and participation in decision – making.
