The APC Women’s Rights Programme will be participating in the event since this space is very relevant to our work against violence against women, on women’s representation in media and online spaces, and on access and participation in the science and technology fields. We consider the reprioritisation of Section J of the Beijing Platform for Action in the Beijing+20 review to be particularly important.
