Sign on in support of our CSW67 Zero Draft Recommendations!
NGO CSW’s Advocacy & Research Group, in keeping with our mission to inclusively advocate for gender equality, has prepared five key recommendations for inclusion in the CSW67 Zero Draft on behalf of girls and women in all their diversity, including underrepresented, rural, grassroots/ community-roots and indigenous women and girls, widows, women on the move, women with disabilities, and LGBTQI+ people.
As a result of consulting with our global, grassroots community to understand their lived experiences, we have identified these critical concerns for “the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in the context of innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age.” Women and girls should be included in the leadership and decision-making processes for the implementation of all five of these recommendations.

We hope to encourage a mutually supportive learning relationship with youth and experienced advocates and foster an ongoing conversation where together we can create a community and inclusive culture that facilitates the emergence of a strong intergenerational movement of activists for gender equality.
