UNA Women at the Commission on the Status of Women

The 59th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW59) is taking place from March 9-20 at United Nations Headquarters in New York City. UNA Women has 20 official delegates attending CSW59, in addition to dozens of other members from around the country. The focus of CSW59 is the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action in honor of the 20th anniversary of its adoption at the Fourth World Conference on Women. To follow the action of this historic CSW session through the eyes of UNA Women delegates, check out the UNA Women Facebook page and UNA Women Blog for updates.

 

Get Involved: Cities for CEDAW

Cities for CEDAW is a nationwide, grassroots effort to encourage local governments to support the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) by way of local ordinances and resolutions. UNA Women members from across the country are already making progress in getting local governments to recognize the principles of CEDAW in places like Louisville, Washington DC and Kansas City. If you are interested in getting involved with the Cities for CEDAW movement, please email Chanteclaire Lantos-Swett for more details.
