Event Alert: The UNWomen Commission on the Status of Women CSW58

Every year over 3,000 Non Governmental Organizations Gather at the United Nations in New York from all over the world, for the Commission on the Status of Women CSW 58 with one key objective for UNWomen the Gender entity of the United Nations to work together with women civil society organizations to advocate for policy dialogue on women's rights and empowerment, development, peace and security.

 As exciting a time this a lot of connections are made, policy documents drafted and overall women demand more clear and concise agendas to push for their rights.  This year is extremely important because in lieu of the  Post 2015 Development Agenda , it is time for Women's Civil Society organizations to push governments and their agendas to accelerate the MDG specifically focused on gender equality and empowerment in their respective countries. This platform provides for those types of conversations and connections to occur. If you happen to be around the New York City area here are more details on the 2 week event!
