So, in seven minutes I was able to get quotes from women who spoke with...

Posted Tue 2 Mar 2010 - 16:34 | 4,826views
Monday, day 1, was day one of the Commission of the Status of Women meeting that is taking place in New York.

I didn't imagine that I would have...

I wonder if we will find women’s “J” spot at the Beijing +15 review…

Posted Tue 23 Feb 2010 - 13:51 | 3,784views
In the article to which the ‘“J” spot’ refers, Maria Suarez explored why Section J was not a priority issue during the Beijing +10 review. Five years later, can we claim that it has happened?
