Something's happening in New York

Women (and some men) from around the world and from across the United States have gathered in New York for the 57th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). Presbyterians and our ecumenical partners are among the number.
57th CSW Outcome DocumentThe CSW will meet from March 4 through 15 to "evaluate progress on gender equality, identify challenges, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and women's empowerment worldwide." Presbyterians, along with representatives of other NGOs, advocate at the meeting in order to shape the recommendations of the CSW.

Here are some ways to follow events at the CSW:

Presbyterian Links

Ecumenical Women Links

The Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations controls the content only on our own social media. We include a range of links as a way to share broad information and a range of expression about the Commission on the Status of Women.
