Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) will take place at the U.N.’s headquarters from March 14-24. Since its inception in 1947, it has been at the forefront of developing international conventions on a range of issues, including the political rights of women, women’s rights in marriage – such as consent, minimum age and registration – and equal pay.Since 1960, evidence began to accumulate that women were disproportionately affected by poverty so UNCSW geared its work towards women’s needs in community and rural development, agricultural work, family planning, and scientific and technological advances.It is a theme that it returns to for its main discussion next month as it explores women’s empowerment and the link to sustainable development. The commission will also review progress since its 57th session in 2013 on the elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls, and also a third strand on an emerging theme yet to be decided.“The session will provide Anglican delegates with a platform on which to spread awareness of the challenges faced by women and girls in their home countries and to advocate on their behalf,” said Rachel Chardon, the general program and administrative officer of the Anglican Communion Office at the United Nations.“The delegates will also have the opportunity to network, share, and build their own capacity by attending side events planned by non-governmental and faith-based organizations advocating for gender justice within a wide range of developmental and human rights issues,” she said. “We hope they will leave the session having formed a close and empowering network with a global reach. Furthermore, we hope the delegates will communicate with others about their experience and continue to engage with the issues addressed at CSW60 within their sending church and in their local communities.”The primates of the Anglican Communion and secretary general Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon nominated the 22 Anglican delegates for the CSW60 meeting. They are from Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, Australia, Brazil, Burundi, Central Africa, England, Hong Kong, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, Southern Africa, Sri Lanka, United States, and West Africa.They will be supported by the staff and volunteers of the Anglican Communion Office at the United Nations.

Avec l’aide d’un animateur professionnel et d’une troupe de théâtre, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church de St. Paul a organisé le 22 janvier un forum intergénérationnel. Ce forum comportait des jeux de rôle où les « aînés enseignaient aux jeunes ce que cela signifie de respecter les femmes », explique LeeAnne Watkins, âgée de cinquante ans, recteure depuis dix-huit ans.Comme partout ailleurs, le nombre de marcheurs a très largement dépassé les attentes. LeeAnne Watkins cite l’exemple de St. Paul où les organisateurs attendaient environ 20 000 participants alors que la police a estimé la foule à environ 100 000 personnes.« C’était joyeux, pacifique et amusant, » poursuit-elle. « Il y avait des embrassades car les gens se reconnaissaient entre eux. Il y avait des groupes de collègues de bureau, beaucoup de jeunes et des personnes en fauteuil roulant.« J’y suis allée parce que c’était une marche pour les femmes… sur les droits des femmes et des jeunes filles, sur la liberté de procréer, sur les immigrés dans notre État, sur la dignité pour tous. Ce n’était pas une marche contre quelque chose, c’était une marche pour toutes les valeurs que je défends et qui sont dictées par ma foi ».Puis elle ajoute : « partout où nous sommes allés, les gens sont venus vers nous et nous ont dit : je suis si heureux que l’Église épiscopale soit ici. Parlez-moi de l’Église épiscopale. Être présent en tant qu’Église épiscopale était vraiment important pour nous ».Que ce soit à New York, à Sacramento ou à Washington, les épiscopaliens ont rejoint ces marches inspirées par l’Esprit Saint. Selon les organisateurs, quelque 600 « marches sœurs » ont attiré des masses de participants à travers le monde. Un chiffre estimé à plus d’un million de femmes, d’hommes et d’enfants, certains portant des bonnets en tricot roses avec des oreilles de chat – le symbole officieux de la marche -, sont descendus dans la rue, dans la capitale du pays et ailleurs, en scandant, en chantant, en portant des messages d’espoir et de paix.Note du rédacteur : une galerie de photos des marches partout aux États-Unis se trouve ici.Article complet en anglais.

In the course of design, the separation wall between the baby room and the living room was taken off, leaving a larger space for dining, study and living concurrently; instead, the curtain could be used as division of study space and living space, and the living space could also be used as baby’s room in the future.Save this picture!© Guo DonghaiThe wall, commonly shared by the living room and the bedroom remains blank to weaken its sense of core.

They’ve formed larger and smaller grids while the original order is broken by the work desk, the sofa, the air conditioner and the beam.

When the wall was not leveled, the elm frame was embedded around the door hole and fixed with the rough wall, then the door frame and the wall were sealed by cement mortar and leveling putty, etc. Finally, the door and the door frame were linked with metal hinge.Save this picture!© Guo DonghaiThe lamps at home, basically of the same structure, were made manually by making use of the abandoned timbers.Save this picture!AxonometricIn order to depict infiniteness from skimpiness, the color shall be simple and natural; besides, the materials shall be mostly intimate to people, such as wood, bamboo, fiber and cotton which can arouse the people’s the most original sense of intimacy.

A new report from The Urban Institute talks about one program’s success and shares some of what they learned. NeighborWorks America, the Congressionally chartered nonprofit organization that implemented the National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling (NFMC) program, identified 4 main takeaways that can be used as guidelines in the future national crisis. The foreclosure crisis was evident towards the end of 2007 when the number of US homeowners at risk of losing their homes had doubled in one year and those numbers were climbing. In response, Congress launched the National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling program in December, which helped 2.14 million homeowners by walking them through the foreclosure process. NFMC’s paid counselors helped homeowners in vulnerable communities explore solutions like renegotiating with their lender or exiting a home they could not afford. First, collaboration is key, stated the report. It may seem obvious, but the faster a consensus is reached on what the crisis is, how to respond and reach shared goals the quicker existing programs can mobilize and get to work. NeighborWorks gathered experts from the field, government agencies, and practitioners on the ground for approving counseling agencies and designing data tracking systems. This enabled them to award $130 million in 60 days, more than 2.5 times their mandated target. In a crisis, funds reaching people in need quickly is a major asset. Next, the importance of transparency, collaboration, and flexibility. Document everything, and make key decisions public, especially when using government funds. Be attentive to problems that emerge, listen to feedback, and tweak. In addition, monitor and evaluate regularly, have systems in place to report data, evaluate results and show value. And last, set high performance standards and help grantees meet them. The Urban Institute highlighted the strong reporting structure and culture of the NFMC program that enabled NeighborWorks standardized foreclosure counseling practices and paid for thousands of counselors to attend training. Taking these valuable lessons from the past, the industry is now better prepared to respond to a housing crisis in the future.Read the full story here.
