Special Focus: The potential of social media in empowering women and girls

In our latest online discussion, we discussed some of the effective strategies in using social media to help advance women's rights. In the lead up to our event on "Making women's voices heard from Beijing to post-2015 in social media" taking place on 17 March in New York, we are organising a live Twitter Q&A on the same topic on 12 March (follow #WomenSpeak). This Special Focus therefore gathers news articles and blogs on social media as a tool to organise campaigns for change, in particular linked to gender equality.Read more.
