CEDAW consultation with UK Government
Members of Wales Assembly of Women are invited to join a consultation on CEDAW being run by the UK Civil Society of Women’s Alliance in conjunction with the UK Government’s Equalities Office (GEO) on Thursday 29 April.
It is our hope that through this event and the one in the autumn, both of which are envisioned to be annual events, we can develop the consultation between civil society and the UK Government. Of course, every four years the Government is examined by the Committee and in this regard our Alliance must be the voice to power that holds up a light to the lived reality of women and girls across the UK. And that voice must be robust.
The Sixty-Fifth Session of the COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN concluded on Friday, 26th March 2021.

This year we decided against holding a Welsh only conference to celebrate International Women's Day. Instead, we embraced the possibilities offered by the fact that the UN Commission for the Status of Women (CSW) was holding their meetings virtually.
We put together a parallel session using some of our previous Awardees who presented their research, live, at this year's event
