Dear Young Feminist Wire members,

Amina Doherty, former FRIDA coordinator, Young Feminist Wire member, Global Fund for Women Advisor, activist and artist, was nominated by RESURJ and the Women’s Major Group to speak at the President of the General Assembly’s high level event on the role of the women, young people and civil society in the post 2015 development debates. The office of the President of the General Assembly has noted that they are taking social media and ICTs very seriously and have even set up a platform to monitor this during this process. With the participation of many young women at the CSW this year, we want to play our role to ensure that women’s rights language leads on all social media platforms.

We are calling on all young feminists to come together and help us to spread the message online about the importance of gender justice and ask as many people as you know to do the same. 

Amina’s speech is at 3 pm and you can watch it here http://www.un.org/en/ga/president/68/settingthestage/2wycs.shtml
The official hashtag for the event is: #UNPGA68WYCS
