"Networking Across Boards and Borders: Strategies for Advancing Gender Equality in Rural Areas"

FES and partners co-hosted this international reception on the sidelines of CSW62 bringing together feminist activists, academics and policy-makers from across the globe.

On the occasion of the 62nd Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), FES New York jointly co-hosted an international reception with Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung -- New York Office, DAWN, Global Policy Forum, MADRE, and Regions Refocus. 

The reception featured keynote remarks by guest of honor Elke Ferner (Fmr.
