Don’t forget to read our written statement for this year!

In a year where the focus is on implementing the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals, it is critical to recognise that women’s economic empowerment is a means for conflict prevention. Moving the money away from arms trade and war and redirecting our resources to invest in gender equitable sustainable development is critical for women’s human rights and peace.

Stay tuned on all the events, highlights, and outcomes around CSW 60! Make sure to follow PeaceWomen online; we will post updates on events, highlights and outcomes of CSW 60 on this page and on Facebook and Twitter!
