Next week, on 4 March, the 57th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (#CSW57) opens at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. It will convene governments, activists, media and private sector partners from around the world to discuss how to prevent violence against women and girls and improve services for survivors everywhere.
