NEW YORK, Tuesday, March 19th.- Ann Kioko, Campaign Director of CitizenGO Africa has been invited to speak at the 2019 Commission on the Status of Women, that began last March 11th at the New York City UN Headquarters and will end on the 28th. She has presented CitizenGO’s International Campaign “Protect Pre-Born Children at U.N.”, that has gathered over 140.000 signatures since March 3rd.
During the CSW, Ann has met delegates from 13 African countries, such as Kenya, Algeria, Nigeria, Ghana or Tunisia, where she’s explained how this meeting is used by “radical feminists to draft policies that affect women worldwide”. “CitizenGO is always there to fight for the rights of the unborn and human dignity for all women”, the spokeswoman added, addressing the Commission.
Kioko has been leading campaigns gathering thousands of signatures each. For instance, a campaign for the liberation of Christian women in Nigeria, and particularly Leah Sharibu, that has been kidnapped by the terrorist organization Boko Haram over a year ago, and not released for refusing to convert to Islam. This petition was supported by more than 229.000 people.
Ann Kioko has also been an outspoken advocate to fight abortion in Kenya, her home country, where independent medical services such as Marie Stopes clinics have been warned by the government for illegally providing abortions in the country for as cheap as 50 dollars.
