National Women’s Alliance’s Survey – Taking the issues affecting rural women to the CSW 2012
The National Rural Women’s Coalition (http://www.nrwc.com.au) and the other five national Women’s Alliances are working together over the next four months to identify the key issues for rural women as they relate to CSW. Our aim is for the government to adopt these issues and raise them at CSW 2012.
The online survey has now closed. Stay tuned for more information on what women from rural, regional and remote Australia identified as the key issues for them as they relate to the CSW 2012 theme.
The selection process for non-government delegates for CSW 56 has now closed on Sunday August 21st. Information is available from the FaHCSIA website at http://www.fahcsia.gov.au/sa/women/progserv/intengage/un/Pages/default.aspx
