We Will Be In NYC for NGO CSW67

Will we see you there?

The global women CSOs’ major event CSW67 & NGO CSW67 will take place from the 6th to the 17th of March, 2023 in New York City in the United States with a primary theme of “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.” This year, NGO CSW67 opens in-person parallel events for organizers to apply after three years when Covid-19 first hit globally.

The Asian Network of Women’s Shelters joins with the Garden of Hope Foundation to host an in-person parallel event on the 10th of March at 10:30 a.m. EST.

Technology-facilitated and digital gender-based violence are increasing across Asia due to rapid digitization. Much of the violence women experience offline is replicated online but has evolved in more complex and diverse forms. Research from the UN indicates that survivors rarely report digital violence in fear of reprisals from perpetrators and social repercussions and a lack of confidence in the judicial process.

CSOs play crucial roles to mediate among stakeholders to tackle this issue. We invite CSOs across Asia to share their experiences, research statistics, and challenges in helping survivors, advocating for legislation reform, and online safety for women and girls.

We will be at New York City to discuss this issue. Please come join us. We will see you there.
