Young Professionals Beijing+25 Event
May 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Come by for a screening of the documentary film, “Passion and Politics: the Life and Work of Charlotte Bunch,” followed by a discussion with Charlotte Bunch herself!
The film is “an extraordinary, must-view documentary for teachers, students and activists. Charlotte Bunch–outspoken lesbian feminist trailblazer, charismatic builder of bridges–is the film’s riveting centerpiece.” (Rosalind Petchesky, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, Hunter College and The Graduate Center, CUNY.) The documentary also discusses Bunch’s involvement in the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA) 25 years ago at the Fourth World Conference on Women where the BPfA was adopted.
NGO CSW/NY is involved in organizing a global gathering commemorating the 25th anniversary of BPfA in 2020 that will specifically educate youth on their rights and how to achieve and protect them. Our conversation with Charlotte Bunch will look at the past, present and future of the Beijing Platform for Action and the instrumental role young people will play in Beijing+25.
