Women from around the world have gathered at United Nations headquarters for the annual session of the Commission on the Status of Women. The theme for this year’s session is "Elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls."

One of the participants in the meetings is Nehad Abo El-Komsan, a Senior Lawyer and Gender Consultant from Egypt who is part of a coalition of women leaders of the Arab Spring known as Karama.

UN Radio’s Derrick Mbatha caught up with her to discuss the theme of the session of the Commission on the Status of Women and what’s happening to women in Egypt.
