BLOG: This Stuff Really Matters…

We learned that 6000 civil society representatives are in town for the CSW57. 6000 from all over the world. That’s amazing and shows how many people in the world care for the issue of elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls. 6000!
And to be honest with you, Kristina and I could feel during the whole day: This really matters. The NGOS CSW Forum Consultation Day gathered almost 800 participants, mostly women, but all of them deeply caring for their fellow human beings who are exposed to atrocious situations and experiences. You hear testimonials throughout the day of panelists and people from the audience about being a victims of rape, a survivor of domestic violence, you hear stories of little girls from all over the world and young women and elderly women. Yesterday, after having understood and explored the political and policy dimensions, the social and academic dimensions of the problem of violence against women and girls, yesterday I understood and explored the emotional dimension.
