The World Student Christian Federation (WSCF) is a global federation of student Christian groups. WSCF is ecumenical, welcoming people from all Christian traditions and encouraging dialogue between students of different traditions. WSCF has members from Protestant, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Roman Catholic and Anglican traditions and from other faiths. WSCF has had special consultative status with the UN through the Economic and Social Council since 1970.
WSCF women have joined the international call for an end to discrimination and violence against women and the girl child. Four WSCF women spoke out at caucuses, forums and a WSCF event at the 51st United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York: on March 1, 2007, WSCF presented its own seminar entitled “Young Women Say No to Violence against Women and the Girl Child”. The WSCF women spoke from their own contexts and shared how their movements are working for positive change. The WSCF is committed to questioning, challenging and reshaping the ecumenical movement and the church, aiming to make them communities that empower women and girls.
