In addition to the official session taking place within the UN, there are hundreds of workshops and events that are free and open to the public without UN or NGO credentials -- which makes this a wonderful opportunity to meet and learn from women who are doing important grassroots work on women's issues around the world. Many of these workshop take place in the Church Center across the street from the UN and a schedule of these "Parallel Events" will be posted online on the CSW website in January. http://www.ngocsw.org/ngo-csw-forum/ngo-parallel-events
