Events at UN Commission on the Status of Women

I will once again be participating in the UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York in March. The theme of CSW this year is eliminating violence against women — an complex and important issue. In conjunction with Women of Spirit and Faith and the Women’s Task Force at the Parliament, I will be involved in several events:

"Kathe Schaaf is a gift for all of us looking for new authentic leadership models in these times of global change and challenge! Her honesty, energy and willingness to be vulnerable inspire deep commitment to making a better world. She has a wonderful way of igniting people to do the work they have come here to do and I personally have been kindled by her kindness, courage and visionary ways." — Clare Peterson, Gather the Women Canada
