UNICEF Innocenti's Zahrah Nesbitt-Ahmed attended the 64th Commission on the Status of Women and celebrated International Women's Day 2020 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.

While the CSW was curtailed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this year the CSW reviewed 25 years of progress since the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (introduced in 1995).

In addition to attending the procedural meeting on March 9th, Zahrah gave a brown bag presentation on UNICEF Innocenti's Gender-Responsive and Age-Sensitive Social Protection research project at UNICEF HQ.
