Next week, governmental leaders from around the world are meeting in New York for the United Nation’s Commission on the Status ofWomen (UNCSW). This is the primary policy-making body on the planet when it comes to gender equality and women’s rights.
The theme this year is the elimination of violence against women and girls, and so we’ve been working hard with our partners to see It’s a Girl included in the two week event (4-15 March).
Several screenings of It’s a Girl are planned for the week, and they are all open to the public, so if you’re in New York or know any representatives of your organization in the area, please help us spread the word!
Monday, March 4 – 6:15pm
Drew Room, Ground Floor at the Church Center
Hosted by the World Youth Alliance – RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuesday, March 5 – 10:30am
TECO Auditorium, Taipei Economic and Cultural Center
Hosted by Women’s Rights Without Frontiers – No RSVP required
Producer Andrew Brown will participate in a panel following the screening.
Saturday, March 9 – 12:30pm
10th Floor at the Church Center
Hosted by the Endeavor Forum – No RSVP required
Producer Andrew Brown will also be participating in the CSW. If you or any representatives from your organization will be there next week, please let us know as we’d love to meet with you!
This is the highest profile event in the world on women’s rights, so we will be measuring its success on whether it moves governmental leaders to take meaningful action against female gendercide globally.

And stay tuned for more on the UNCSW in the weeks ahead!
