As exciting a time this a lot of connections are made, policy documents drafted and overall women demand more clear and concise agendas to push for their rights. This year is extremely important because in lieu of the Post 2015 Development Agenda , it is time for Women's Civil Society organizations to push governments and their agendas to accelerate the MDG specifically focused on gender equality and empowerment in their respective countries.
