Recommended readings and resources for CSW68

By APCNews

The United Nation's Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is the main global intergovernmental body dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. It is one of the most important spaces for international advocacy on women’s rights as it has been a vital space for the drafting of international legal instruments, such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and its Optional Protocol and global normative and policy frameworks like the Beijing Platform for Action. 

The 68th annual meeting of the CSW (CSW68) is taking place from March 11th to 22nd in New York City. APC’s Women’s Rights Programme (WRP) has actively engaged in CSW for the last 30 years, effectively contributing to the success of this space. See the APC's network's schedule of events for details about our participation this year. Here are some essential resources and reads to help you investigate, discuss and question some of the issues APC will be exploring this year at CSW68.
