Hi everyone, with only 4 days remaining before the 57th Commission on the Status of Women begins on 4 March at United Nations Headquarters in New York, we at Ecumenical Women will be providing you with daily thoughts, video, quotes and prayers that inspire our work.

Boys and men play an important role in eliminating all forms of violence against girls and women.  Furthermore, we know that violence against girls and women hurts boys and men as well.  With those facts in mind, today we post The Man Prayer,” a short film by Tony Stroebel with words by Eve Ensler.  It provides a powerful example of what it means to develop a positive sense of masculinity.  Thanks so much, and we look forward to seeing you at CSW57!
