She Decides Day 2020 & Launch of the Gender Equality Initiative in Malaysia

2nd March 2020

Location: The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, Perdana Botanical Gardens, Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Date: 2020-03-02

Every March 2nd, we celebrate the formation of SheDecides; a movement to defend girls and women's rights to control what happens to their bodies, their futures and their lives.

We are fast approaching the anniversary of this momentous gathering and it is envisioned that there will not just be one event in one country, there will be hundreds, in many shapes and sizes, all over the globe. To mark the third anniversary on 2nd March 2020,the Asian Pacific Research & Resource Centre for Women (ARROW)xvi will bring together like-minded individuals, thought-leaders, champions, donors and the media to share their stories, the lived experiences of girls and women in the region and reaffirm the pledge for SheDecides regionally. It is also a day to welcome the collaboration between the European Union and ARROW, along with Malaysian CSOs FFHRAM and JFS on a project that will see capacity building for advocacy of CSOs/CBOs, mainly in remote and disadvantaged areas, and advocacy activities with relevant political decision-makers on the national level and in Perak and Terengganu. This collaboration will focus on the implementation of relevant concluding observations from the CEDAW review in 2018 in the area of women's SRH, and gender equality, and the UPR recommendations
