16 Days 16days at
Thu Sep 6 14:43:01 EDT 2012

Dear 16 Days Activists,

As you may know, the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) 
<> will consider 
'Elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and 
girls" as its priority theme during its fifty-seventh session in 2013.

In order to contribute to a full understanding of the issue and to 
assist the Commission in its deliberations, United Nations Entity for 
Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) will convene an 
Expert Group Meeting on the prevention of violence against women and 
girls in Bangkok, Thailand, from 17 to 20 September 2012.

As we gear up for the 16 Days Campaign and CSW57, we wanted to share 
with you the Concept Note for the expert meeting, attached.  More 
information about the meeting, including the Concept Note, is available at:

In solidarity,
