That was a question I heard several times at the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) last week. But while sitting through events, debates and discussions in New York, my recurring thought was why, in 2013, are we still arguing over whether women should have ownership of their own bodies? Numerous international human rights documents, national laws and UN agreements – including the Convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women , the outcome document of the International Conference on Population and Development , held in Cairo in 1994, and its reaffirmation in the Beijing Declaration in 1995 , to name just a couple – have failed to convince some that women have the right to access family planning, or to decide whether or not they want to have children and, if so, ...

North Korea rages at new UN sanctions 8.3.2013 The Guardian -- World Latest
Non-aggression pact with South Korea cancelled, adding to threat of nuclear attack on US and 'crushing strikes' on foes North Korea has said it is cancelling a hotline and non-aggression pact with the South after the United Nations security council unanimously backed a toughened sanctions regime over the country's third nuclear test. Pyongyang issued a series of warnings in the run-up to Thursday's vote, and in the hours before the council met it raised the threat of a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the United States.
