55th session of CSW: Panel for 2012 – The empowerment of rural women. Fifty-Fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women (24 February 2011)
Gender equality has been hot topics for years. I’m passionate about this topic that would create public outreach for women’s right that will results in women empowerment. Whether it is a workforce relation issue, violence against women and girls, hunger and poverty and access to educations for women and young girls. This is where UN Women brings forth this issues and to take actions together to make a difference.
A global policy-making body, the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is a functional commission of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), dedicated exclusively to gender equality and the advancement of women. Every year, representatives of Member States gather at the United Nations Headquarters in New York to evaluate progress on gender equality, identify challenges, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and advancement of women worldwide. read more: About CSW, Documentation, NGO Participation
