The Commission on the Status of Women is an annual event held by the United Nations in New York around International Women’s Day. It brings together representatives of UN Member States, civil society organizations, and UN entities. The 63rd CSW event will focus on: social protection systems, access to public services, and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
