United Nations Commission on the Status of Women

The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is a functional commission within the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and is the main United Nations (UN) body responsible for promoting the empowerment of women and gender equality. The 45 Member States of CSW, organized into five geographic regions, meet annually to discuss topics such as the elimination of discrimination of women, the role of women in sustainable development, and the inclusion of women in the political process. The international community looks to CSW to lay the foundation and serve as an example in enhancing global gender equality in the social, political, and economic fields. CSW accomplishes this by assisting Member States in implementing existing international frameworks, such as the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and Sustainable Development Goal 5, and ensuring that programs and policies of the UN have a gender perspective. CSW works closely with ECOSOC, UN Women, and various other organizations in order to advance the role of women in across the globe.
