CSW66 Parallel Events featuring Indigenous Women
The UN Commission on the Status of Women has started, and the civil society NGO CSW Forum is in full swing online through March 25. It is open to all, through free registration online, with over 750 events. And more than ever, the Forum is working to influence the negotiations inside the UN.

This year's main theme is "Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in the context of climate change, environmental and disaster risk reduction policies and programmes ”.
