The 58th session of the Commission on the Status of Women took place at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 10 to 21 March 2014. The theme this year was the "Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls".
This summary provides an overview of CSW 58 events from a Women, Peace and Security (WPS) perspective. The events summarized in part 5 of this report are only a fraction of the events that took place during CSW 58. To make the best use of our finite capacity, we have been selective, and attended and reported only on events with topics strongly related to PeaceWomen/WILPF and the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda as well as geographical focus areas.
