The offical UNCSW 56 panel focusing on the economic empowerment of rural women took place on 28 February. PSI Regional Secretary for Asia Pacific, Lakshmi Vaidhiyanathan, was selected to intervene on behalf of the labour delegation, from a long list of civil society organisations.
After a rich discussion, which saw many references to our key priorities of decent work, education and access to vital services, Lakshmi had just 40 seconds to get her message across to the governments, expert panellists and civil society organisations present in the room! This she did with great aplomb.
