From 2 March - 13 March 2009, the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) meets in New York. Jane Gabriel and openDemocracy guest bloggers report from New York with tales and testimonies from a UN meeting which should place women at the forefront of the global debate. 2009's priority theme was "The equal sharing of responsibilities between women and men, including caregiving in the context of HIV/AIDS".
