    Event description

    The landmark Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action addresses women in power and decision making as a critical area of concern and last year’s review of its implementation has brought renewed attention to the situation of women’s participation in public life and to the need to accelerate the closing of gender gaps therein.

    The sixty-fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW65) will take place from 15 to 26 March 2021 under the priority theme “Women’s full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”.

    Co-hosted by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, UN Women Europe and Central Asia Regional Office, and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), this side-event on 17 March (at 7:00 am New York time) will include interventions from women politicians and leaders, who have been, and still are, involved and active in actions to end violence against women in politics and for peaceful change. The panelists will discuss their experiences with harassment and violence in politics, solutions to address this violence, and methods to rise above to continue their important work in the public sphere.
