VOW Videos – The United Nation’s Commission on Status of Women


VOW’s long standing links with the UN has always been dedicated towards empowering women’s voice for peace. It also includes many opportunities to engage with relevant UN meetings such as its Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).

The United Nation’s Commission on Status of Women (UNCSW) invites representatives from all over the world, in March of every year, to the UN Headquarters, New York. This year the 61st session took place from March 13 to 24. More than 3,900 civil society representatives from 138 countries participated in this great event. Voice of Women for Peace (VOW), Canada, also sent around 20 women representatives. These enthusiastic and passionate women travelled to NY and actively engaged themselves in a variety of events.

This video highlights the 61st meeting, focusing on Women’s Economic Empowerment.
