  1. I listened to the GWI presentation, thank you for sharing the link and timing place where to hear Stacy. Human rights education as in the UN Declaration of Human Rights Education and Training means every article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on which the Declaration is based will be essential to operationalize if equality is to be achieved for women and girls and achieve the STGs., and all forms of violence is to be addressed and eliminated internationally in every country and against indigenous women and girls, against all women and girls.
