“We're hoping to have bold conclusions that set norms and standards to push forward, making sure that women are well represented in the tech sphere. That education allows them to participate in the innovation, ecosystems that are there, that women, young women in particular, are given space to design technology, to develop technology, to deploy technology.”

“That is unfortunate, what is happening in Afghanistan. When we are now talking about digital education, how do we make sure that girls get digital education, that they get computational education, so that they can participate meaningfully in the digital world… in other parts we were faced with a situation where there's not even education for girls, so it's quite hard.”

STORYLINE
The sixty-seventh session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) kicks off in New York next Monday with “a record number of women from all over the globe”, said this years’ Chair of the CSW.

Speaking to journalists on Friday (03 Mar), the chair, Mathu Joyini, Permanent Representative of the Republic of South Africa, said “[These participants are] from government from civil society, young people are going to join us.”

“And of course, the theme of this year's CSW is innovation and technological change and dedication in the digital age for achieving gender equality and employment of all women,” Joyini continued.

The Chair said the Commission is “hoping to have bold conclusions that set norms and standards to push forward, making sure that women are well represented in the tech sphere.”

Joyini added, “that education allows them to participate in the innovation, ecosystems that are there, that women, young women in particular, are given space to design technology, to develop technology, to deploy technology.”

The Permanent Representative also addressed the challenges for women and girls that have limits to their education that go beyond the digital world.

“That is unfortunate, what is happening in Afghanistan. When we are now talking about digital education, how do we make sure that girls get digital education, that they get computational education, so that they can participate meaningfully in the digital world… in other parts we were faced with a situation where there's not even education for girls, so it's quite hard,” concluded Joyini.
