Help Make the UN Human Rights Council Work for Women’s Rights

From April 10 to April 26, 2007, diplomats with the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) will meet in Geneva to define how the Council will carry out its work in the coming years. Human and women’s rights organizations across the globe are coming together to insist that the voices of women and girls are heard.
