About the book

This publication illustrates the 70+ year-long history of the Commission on the Status of Women, which through 62 sessions has consistently advocated for the realization of gender equality and the empowerment of women and enjoyment of their human rights, in an effort to realize the substantive equality of all women and girls, everywhere. In the era of the 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and all States’ commitment to leave no one behind and reach those furthest behind first, the Commission has confirmed its leadership role in strengthening, deepening and expanding the global normative framework for gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls, and monitoring agreed actions.
