PAST EVENTS - 2005
UN CSW Meeting 2005 (49th Session)
The 2005 CSW meetings also held firm to not opening the Platform for Action document (against concerted efforts by the United States to open it up). The majority of time and effort spent at the 2005 CSW went to stop this action. The Anglican NGO delegation comprised of a large delegation from around the world was instrumental in stopping the US government. For more information go to www.episcopalchurch.org/uncsw. The 2005 CSW Meeting and the Beijing +10 Review provided a wealth of information related to the status of women. For the majority of countries the status had not improved. Violence against women, poverty, AIDS and sex trafficking are issues of grave concern.
