UN Hosts World’s Largest Gathering of Women Activists

From March 9-20 more than 8,600 representatives of some 1,100 non-governmental organizations will participate in United Nations’ 59th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). Their primary mission is to evaluate the progress in implementing the 20-year Platform for Action adopted at the historic 1995 Conference on Women in Beijing. Women advocates charge progress in implementing the Action Plan has been slow and uneven and major obstacles remain.
