In addition to the group Ecumenical Women Advocacy Statement that is submitted to the United Nations and shared with member states each year for CSW, some of our individual member organizations prepare and submit advocacy statements as well.  This year for CSW57 there are two EW member organization advocacy statements, which you can check out below:

Thanks so much, and we can’t wait to see you at CSW57!

In order to promote civil society and public participation in a June 2014 thematic report, the UN Human Rights Council’s Working Group on Discrimination against Women has created a survey on discrimination against women in economic and social life, available here.  Survey responses will inform the report, which will specifically focus on women’s economic and social lives during times of economic crisis.  The deadline for contributions is 1 March 2013, so please contribute soon.  Depending on your expertise and experiences, you might want to respond to only some of the questions or some of the sections of the survey. Please be assured that all responses will remain confidential.

The Working Group on Discrimination against Women is a special procedure established by the Human Rights Council in 2010. It has been tasked to identify, promote and exchange views on good practices to eliminate discrimination against women in law and in practice.
