Five days left to donate a tweet ahead of #CSW57


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. The Say NO – UNiTE Team are excited about the momentum and opportunity that CSW57 brings! Are you?

Many of you have been asking us what Thunderclap is. It's a new crowdspeaking platform that will store tweets and release them all together on 4 March. The more tweets gathered, the louder the message.
