October Monthly Meeting

October 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

While poverty affects all people, gender inequality exacerbates the drivers of poverty, putting more pressure on women and girls as they have far fewer resources to cope. They are likely to be the last to eat, the ones least likely to access healthcare, and routinely trapped in time-consuming, unpaid domestic tasks. They have more limited options to work or build businesses. Adequate education may lie out of reach. Some end up forced into sexual exploitation as part of a basic struggle to survive.

As the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) prepares to examine the priority theme “Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective” in March 2024, NGO CSW/NY has decided to dedicate its October Monthly Meeting to start a discussion in which we can collectively begin to unpack the different elements contained in it.
