Virtual Townhall Meeting of Civil Society and United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres – August 31, 2020


Owing to the cancellation of the Commission on the Status of Women earlier this year, the Secretary-General’s annual consultation with women’s civil society was postponed. The virtual townhall will provide an opportunity in this moment for women’s civil society organization to engage with the Secretary-General on the issue of the COVID-19 crisis, sharing their experiences of the impact of the pandemic and their recommendations to the UN in addressing the crisis and rebuilding a more sustainable and inclusive future, as well as its role in protecting and promoting women’s rights and agency  within this new context.
