11:00 AM - 12:00 PM        Press Conference: Empowering indigenous women.
In line with the priority theme of this year’s Commission on the Status of Women, “Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development,” indigenous women have called for their empowerment to become a driving force in achieving sustainable development and in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. All over the world, indigenous women face multiple levels of discrimination in the private and public spheres. They experience violence, extreme poverty, trafficking, illiteracy, lack of access to ancestral lands, and non-existent or poor health care. At the press conference, three indigenous women will share their experiences related to leadership and the achievements that can be made when indigenous women become empowered to take on key roles in combating violence, eradicating poverty and leading political processes to make changes at the local, national and global levels.
Speakers: Ashlee Donohue, Urban Aboriginal Women's Group Australia; Valerie Kasaiyian, Indigenous Information Network, Kenya; Tarcila Rivera Zea, International Indigenous Women’s Forum, Centro de Culturas Indígenas del Perú (CHIRAPAQ), Peru
