Updated on Sept. 13, 2019, to correct one of the co-hosts of the UN side event. It was previously incorrectly reported that the UN Commission on the Status of Women was co-hosting the event with Jubilee Campaign. In fact, Christian Solidarity Worldwide and Jubilee Campaign are co-hosting the event.
