Anglican Communion women in USA for UN Commission

From ACNS-

Women from 18 Provinces of the Anglican Communion are converging on New York, USA, to collectively take part in the annual session of the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women.

On Monday, 10 March, the United Nations will launch the 58th session of the Commission, which this year has the theme of Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls.

Anglicans and Episcopalians were selected by their Primates to attend on behalf of their Province and will be monitoring plenary sessions and attending parallel events (panels and meetings) on topics that all speak to that theme.

After the Commission concludes, the women will be returning to brief their Provinces on the discussions and outcomes from the event.
