The fifty-eighth session on the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) will occur from 10 to 21 March 2014 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. WILPF's delegation, consisting of 60 women from around the world, will join representatives of United Nations (UN) Member States, UN entities and ECOSOC-accredited non-governmental organizations for an exciting two weeks full of UN side-events, panel discussions, movie screenings and interactive dialogues.

The Priority Theme of CSW 58 is “Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls”. As a response to this year's Priority Theme, WILPF calls for a "post 2015 development agenda that invests in gender equality and peace for sustainable development rather than current investments in degenerative development, inequality and violence".
