UNBonn: Network “Gender@International Bonn” launched

On the eve of international women’s day, key players in Bonn today have launched the Gender@International Bonn network.

It aims at mutual exchange and cooperation in the field of gender equality, in particular by offering a platform for internationally active stakeholders in Bonn.
