Commission of the Status of Women to Focus on Girl Child
Thursday, February 1, 2007 1:28 PM

As part of its program in 2007-2009, the Commission on the Status of Women will consider “The elimination of all forms of discrimination and violence against the girl child” as its priority theme in 2007. The United Nations Division for the Advancement of Women, in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), organized an Expert Group Meeting in September 2006 on this topic, in order to better contribute to the Council's deliberations. The EGM was hosted by the UNICEF Innocenti Research Center in Italy.  UN DAW also hosted an on-line discussion on the theme.
