NGO Committee on the Status of Women, NY (or NGO CSW/NY) is a convener of global civil society for the annual UN CSW and global gender equality advocacy. We are a coalition of NGOs, civil society organizations, and individuals concerned with gender equality and the rights and empowerment of women and girls.
NGO CSW/NY's main project is organizing the annual NGO CSW Forum in order to bridge the gap between global civil society and grassroots organizations, and the official UN Commission on the Status of Women process in New York.
The NGO Committee on the Status of Women, NY (NGO CSW/NY) was created in 1972 as one of the NGO Committees of the Conference of NGOs (CoNGO). It was formed in preparation for the International Women’s Year (1975), the UN Decade of Women (1975-1985) and the First World Conference on Women held in Mexico City in 1975.
NGO CSW/NY was created to provide a forum for exchange of information on global women’s issues (our annual NGO CSW Forum), facilitating our global community of members, and later, assisting the international community in implementing the Beijing Platform for Action and other UN agreements.
