Leticia Shahani: Beef up structures
Thirty years after serving as its midwife, a lobby of “the older generationÀ is meeting informally to caucus for the upgrading of the beleaguered United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) which they say is now more important than ever before.

Challenges that go beyond borders
The Executive Director of the United Nation’s Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), Noeleen Heyzer, called on women to mark International Women’s Day today by remembering, and re-investing in a leadership that transcends power relationships, crosses borders, and continues to emerge from the experiences of women’s lives on the ground.

New agendas roll in
Ten resolutions will be tabled at the review of the Beijing conference Tuesday for endorsement at the end of the 49th Session of the Committee on the Status of the Women (CSW). The US resolutions – trafficking and economic advancement of women – are among the resolutions being negotiated for adoption by consensus on Friday.
