One of the very best parts about attending the CSW is all the events put on by the many NGOs that are part of the event. I will promote some of the events here that might interest you.
One of the issues that has been discussed and debated at several of the past CSWs is prostitution/sex trade, and the Nordic Model in particular. The Canadian Federation of University Women, CFUW, (a member of the International Federation of University Women) will be putting on this panel that promises to be educational and provide delegates with the reality of many women's lives. You might want to mark it down in your calendars now!
CFUW is supporting the NGO Women Graduates USA panel at the UN CSW New
York City entitled: The Necessity of the Nordic Model from SPACE
International (Survivors of Prostitution-Abuse Calling For
Enlightenment). The panel will be held on March 14th at 2:30 pm on the
10th Floor of the Church Building. Jeanne Sarson and Linda MacDonald will be included as panelists and they will be talking about the reality of non-State torture that occurs in prostitution.
