CSW65 event recording: How GBV impacts the full & equal participation of women and girls

On March 25th, the ICGBV hosted an event for the 65th Commission on the Status of Women. We focused in on how GBV can impact the full and equal participation of women and girls with disabilities.

A recording of the event can be viewed below. A full transcript for the event can be accessed here. YouTube also provides closed captions.

Please note that due to technical difficulties on Zoom, unfortunately the international sign interpretation did not record. Carolyn’s Philippine Sign Language did not record either, however her interpreters John and Joi are viewable in the video and the transcript can be access at the link above or via YouTube.
