The sixty-first session of the Commission on the Status of Women will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 13 to 24 March 2017. The Due Diligence Project and the Association for Progressive Communications were proud sponsors of a side event at CSW61:

"there's nothing we can do"
