WAGGGS at 57th Commission on the Status of Women

3 March 2013

CSW 57 delegation frot banner14 young women are representing WAGGGS at the 57th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). This year UN Member States will be focusing on the elimination and prevention of violence against women and girls.

At CSW WAGGGS delegates will be promoting the work that Girl Guides and Girl Scouts have done on ending violence against girls through the Stop the Violence campaign. WAGGGS and UN Women will also be launching Voices against Violence at CSW – the non-formal, co-educational curriculum on violence against girls that has been piloted in 20 Member Organizations.

Delegates will be lobbying decision-makers to create a better world for girls. Their lobbying demands will be based on WAGGGS’ nine calls to action.

You can read the delegate’s Daily Updates to find out more about the work and activities the delegates do at CSW.

Although Singapore will not be represented, I'm hopeful that our Young Adults will benefit from the learning outcomes of the CSW57. Go, ladies go!
