A very important NGO panel on "The Media's Sexual Objectification of Women:  A 
Human Rights Violation" will be held on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25 from 2:00 to 3:30 
p.m. at the Salvation Army Social Justice Commission, located at 221 E. 52nd 
Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues) in New York City.  


This panel is a parallel event of the 55th Session of the UN Commission on the 
Status of Women (CSW).  Sponsored by the National Organization for Women (NOW), 
the Women's UN Report Network (WUNRN), the World YWCA and Worldwide Organization 
for Women (WOW), speakers include Jean Kilbourne, Ed.D., global expert on media 
images of women, Terry O'Neill, President of NOW, Hendrica Okondo, Regional 
Director for Africa & the Middle East of World YWCA, and Lois Herman of WUNRN.  


Women and girls are constantly sexualized and commodified by the media, leading 
to violence and sexual assault, discrimination, mental & physical health 
problems.  Come and learn what you can do about it.
