CSW factsheet

Advocating for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls

The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) helps the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) to monitor, review, and assess the implementation of the Beijing Programme for Action (BPfA) at the national, regional, and international level. Every year member states gather at UN headquarters in New York to discuss issues related to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, and to negotiate a series of action-oriented outcome documents in the form of agreed conclusions and resolutions based on one of the issues highlighted in the BPfA. This factsheet developed by CHOICE will not only learn you more about the CSW, but also about how you can get involved!
