The 57th Commission on the Status of Women begins!

Evelyn and Elisa at the Opening Session

This morning at 10:00 am, the 57th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women began. Presbyterian delegation to the UN Commission on the Status of Women members Evelyn Pugh and Elisa Boles were there for the opening ceremonies! Meagan Manas was also present - she took the photo. Other members of the delegation followed the ceremonies online.

Pray for the members of the Commission and those who gather to advocate for an end to violence against women and girls.
