This parallel event from the 60th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) will discuss cultural, traditional, and religious foundations of laws and law reform that are directly related to ending violence against women. Around the world, women are impacted by gender-related legislation that determines their right to marry, travel, hold a job, choose their place of residence, or make decisions about their children’s rights.
WLP will present research and solutions of scholars and activists, and panelists Julie Cisse, Lubna Dawany, Rabeea Hadi, and Soraida Hussein will share challenges and best practices from their countries, discussing next steps for the 2015-2030 agenda.
Lina Abou-Habib serves as moderator.
