Message Sent – Update on our Delegate roles at United Nations’ Commission on Status of Women

The closer it gets to March 2013, the more and more excited I become with all the possibilities….

It is certainly to be a role of a lifetime, and I can’t wait! :))

Check out our quick video update about what were planning for the 57th Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations!

Ecumenical Women is an international coalition of church denominations and ecumenical organizations which have status with the Economic & Social Council (ECOSOC) at the United Nations. As a coalition, we seek to give those traditionally excluded from political decision making bodies, opportunities to speak truth to power through partnerships with our communities and through bringing women from around the world to the United Nations. Our Ecumenical Women coalition advocates for gender justice at the United Nations, incorporating annual advocacy trainings for our constituencies and delegations, network building and policy recommendations which challenge structures of inequality. Members of Ecumenical Women advocate not only for a few improvements but for a fundamental system change in church and state to invest in and empower women worldwide.
