PAST EVENTS - 2004
UN CSW Meeting 2004 (48th Session)
Support for the Idea of a 5th WWC occurred at the 2004 CSW meeting. During a NGO meeting of NGOs and governmental delegates held to discuss a 5th UN World Conference on Women, our delegation (5wwc) representing grassroots support from the US and Canada, helped to influence the need for such a gathering and the viability of grassroots support. Bringing forth grassroots women's support from individuals and organizations not accredited by the UN was greatly welcomed. Fear that the Beijing Platform for Action (see below) would be dismantled was laid to rest when the member states (governments) of the United Nations affirmed its commitment to not opening the Platform for Action document.
