Next week at the largest annual global women’s rights forum - the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women - CIVICUS will be calling on the governments to prioritse gender equality and to foster women´s rights movements taking the world by storm. We will convene several meetings with partners and activists highlighting the civic space restrictions linked with gender and call for actions through a two week campaign with activists telling governments to protect civic space because women’s rights can only be achieved together with civil society.
