2016 marks the 60th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), which will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 14 to 24 March. This year, the priority theme is "Women’s empowerment and the link to sustainable development" and the review theme is "The elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls".
PeaceWomen and WILPF are excited to once again participate in CSW 60, and demands that we shift the gaze. We have waited long for governments to fully implement UNSCR 1325, so now is the time for the feminist movement to join together and take action! WILPF and MADRE are organising a symposium with the aim to develop strategies to implement UNSCR 1325, with consideration to the Global Study that was launched in October. Join us and raise your voice!
In order to stay updated on all the events, highlights, and outcomes, make sure to follow PeaceWomen’s getting ready and preparing for its participation. We have already created the CSW 60 page in which we will keep you updated of all the events, highlights and outcomes of CSW 60. And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
