WAGGGS: Online chatathon for International Women’s Day

[Brussels, 04 March 2013] On 08 March, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is organising a 24 hour Chatathon to increase awareness on girls’ and young women’s rights, gather recommendations from around the world on how to make these rights a reality and contribute to the World We Want for Girls!

Crossing eight time zones from the Philippines to Costa Rica, eight young women will moderate discussions on education for girls, violence against girls and young women, decent job opportunities for young women and girls’ and young women’s participation in the development of the post-2015 agenda. The young women will be joined by guest speakers – experts in each field.
