Commission on the Status of Women 58th Session

28th April 2014

We've put together a new collection of resources on the recent session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) convened under the title: Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls.

The CSW brings together representatives of UN Member States, UN entities and civil society organisations. It is the principal global policy-making body dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women. Every year, a session is held at UN Headquarters to evaluate progress on gender equality, identify challenges, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and women's empowerment worldwide.

A key objective for this session was ensuring that gender equality and women’s human rights are central to the post-2015 development agenda, and the new Sustainable Development Goals.

Below we highlight a few key readings relating to these issues.
