Commission on the Status of Women starts today

The fiftieth session of the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) starts today and will run through March 10.
The two themes of this year’s session are:

Enhanced participation of women in development: an enabling environment for achieving gender equality and the advancement of women, taking into account, inter alia, the fields of education, health and work.
Equal participation of women and men in decision-making processes at all levels.

Check out the Women’s Environment and Development Organization for more info on this year’s CSW.
Unfortunately I won’t be attending this CSW (sniff sniff), but I’ll do my best to bring you updates as I get them.
Something kind of cool: You can watch some of the sessions through the UN’s webcast.
