Article by Alice Fookes, UK National Committee’s Education Programme Coordinator on her experience of the 57th session of the CSW.
This year I had the chance to attend the Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York. I was one of the NGO representative delegates from the UK. A key reason for going was because I give a lot of talks about the work of UN Women and felt it was important that I get to grips with the inner workings of CSW, UN Women and the UN. I was also interested to find out how exactly all the words are turned into action or transformative change as it’s known in the business.
