Hi Marianne,

It's a bit of a strange event, given a political declaration has
already been negotiated and finalised before the event (with huge
amounts of critique from civ soc for watered down women's rights
language). But there will be serious participation all around, because
it is B+20, so there are many conversations and discussins esp in
relation to post-2015, and what BPFA would mean in relation to the
SDGs. So this is our priority - to re-emphasize, deepend and broaden
section J in the midst of this.

Not sure about remote participation, but definitely there'll be a buzz
on twitter. Please join us for the #sectionj conversations at least!
