These events are totally organized by the host organization and address the UN CSW priority and/or review theme in some way. The deadline to apply is Friday, 2 December. Late applications will not be accepted.
Promote your organization on the NGO CSW67 Virtual Portal!
Apply for a virtual Exhibit Booth and/or Handbook Ad to promote your organization or Parallel Event and engage with NGO CSW67 Forum attendees on our Virtual Portal.
Hosting a virtual Exhibit Booth or Handbook Ad is a great way to promote your organization, group, or campaign and/or your Parallel Event at the NGO CSW67 Forum. The format and features of Exhibit Booths and Handbook Ads are different from past years due to our new and improved Portal! Be sure to read all the details carefully before submitting your application.

Follow-Up | Women, Life, Freedom: Global Implications of the Women-Led Uprising in Iran
Watch the recording of our event addressing the situation in Iran and its global implications. We were joined by a panel of Iranian women who offered an analysis of the uprising in Iran, followed by another panel of women active in the women’s movements across different regions who discussed the global implications of this women-led uprising. The event showcased how feminists from around the world are working together to build global solidarity in their advocacy for structural change.
This is a critical moment for leaders in the international community to vocally and unequivocally demonstrate their support for women’s rights by standing in solidarity with Iranian women and girls.
