Advocacy for Gender Justice and Women’s Empowerment

The United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) takes place online from 15-26 March. This year’s event, which brings together governments and civil society organizations, including many faith-based groups, will focus on women’s full and effective participation and decision making in public life.  

The Lutheran World Federation will be participating in the two-week event with a delegation of over seventy members from more than 30 countries, lifting up the voices of women and men working as gender justice advocates in different parts of the globe.  

Coordinated by the Lutheran Office for World Community in New York, participants will advocate with government delegations and take part in many public events in collaboration with ecumenical and interfaith partners. 

This 65th session of the CSW, which plays a key role in shaping global standards of gender equality, takes place as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to provoke an alarming increase in domestic and gender-based violence and a roll-back of hard-won rights for women.
