As we amp up our 7 Day Countdown to a World of 7 Billion, we’re excited to announce the first of our 7 key topics which we will be discussing one each day, leading up to October 31st. See yesterday’s blog post on how you can participate in the countdown and join the 7 Billion Actions movement.
Today’s topic is Women and Girls: Empowerment and Progress and we’re kicking it off this morning at 11:30 EST with a Twitter Chat with UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. Join UN Women’s Chief Advisor on Peace & Security, Ann Marie Goetz, for an interactive Twitter chat around the issues of sexual violence in conflict, women’s participation in peace talks and post-conflict resolution.
