The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is a functional commission of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It is the principal global policy-making body dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women.
Every year, representatives of member states gather at 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 women's empowerment worldwide.
This year’s priority theme of the CSW is ‘women’s economic empowerment in the changing world of work’. IPPF is working with partners to make sure that sexual and reproductive health and rights are considered central to women’s economic empowerment within negotiations at the CSW.
