Commission of the Status of Women

Every year WAGGGS sends a delegation to the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). At this event Girl Guides and Girl Scouts advocate decision-makers to include the voices of girls and young women in their decisions. In 2012 eight young women and girls attended the 56th CSW and advocated decision-makers on the issues that girls and women face in rural areas. Daily updates for the 56th CSW can be found here.
