The UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) held its annual session from March 6 to 17 at the UN headquarters in New York. At the same time as the official meetings for UN CSW member countries, women from all over the world gathered, in-person and virtually, to think about and discuss this year’s theme: Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. For the first time, this year’s meeting was hybrid.
At the NGO CSW Forum, the US Women’s Caucus at the UN (USWC) held two events. The first was an in-person event on March 9 with the topic of “US and Civil Society at the UN CSW: The Back Story.” The second topic was discussed at an online event on March 14 and was titled “Gender Digital Divide in the US: Problems, Promises, and Progress.” Both events were a solid success. A big thanks goes out to all speakers and participants! Sung is a Caucus member.
