CSW58 Agreed conclusions

Vervolg op berichten van Aleid van den Brink en Riekje Kok vanuit New York.

De 58ste bijeenkomst van de Commissie Satus of Women (CSW58) die van 10 tot 21 maart in New York werd gehouden, is succesvol afgerond met overeengekomen conclusies.

Kort samengevat beteken de conculsies het volgende:

Agreed conclusions put forward, among others, the need to address issues related to violence against women, sexual and reproductive rights, unpaid labour, women’s empowerment and ownership of assets and land. The agreed conclusions also call for the need for a stand-alone goal on gender equality and women's empowerment in the post-2015 development agenda, and a mainstreaming of gender equality in all other goals. Violence against women was stressed as a crucial target area, and its elimination, a global priority.

After two intense weeks of negotiations,  the agreed conclusions have been welcomed as a success. Information on resolutions adopted at CSW58 is also available at
