CSW 66: Ending Violence Against Women in Politics - Special Event hosted by the President of the General Assembly

While women have made significant inroads into politics in recent years, their involvement as candidates, voters, supporters, and activists has spurred attacks, intimidation and harassment in many parts of the world. Violence against women in politics (VAWP) refers to tactics used to silence women's voices in politics.

Convened on the sidelines of the 66th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, this event aims to draw the highest-level of Member State attention to Violence Against Women in Politics (VAWP) and provide the space for Ministers and experts to identify existing structural and normative barriers, as well as new opportunities to eliminate VAWP to ensure women's full, equal, and meaningful participation in politics.
