Professor shines at 68th United Nations World Conference on Women

Her participation not only enriches the global dialogue on women's rights and empowerment but also underscores the academic community's commitment to addressing current challenges.

On March 20, 2024, the United Nations Headquarters in New York hosted the 68th Annual Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW68), the United Nations' largest annual meeting on gender equality and women's empowerment. This prestigious event brings together brilliant minds from all corners of the world to discuss crucial issues related to women's rights and women's empowerment.

One of the highlights of the conference was the intervention of Giulia Bovassi, Professor of the Master's Degree in Global Bioethics, who focused on surrogacy. Her meticulously prepared and content-rich presentation shed light on the complexities surrounding this type of gestation, exploring its bioethical, legal and social dimensions.

Her talk not only generated remarkable engagement and interest among the attendees but also profoundly impacted students from the Anahuac community who approached her to learn more about the topic.

Professor Bovassi's invitation to join the ADF International and Holy See group highlights the recognition of her expertise and underscores the importance of her valuable contributions to the discourse on bioethical issues related to female reproduction.
