PWDA and Women With Disabilities Australia participated in the 59th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW59) at the United Nations in New York from 9-20 March in 2015.

CSW59 reviewed the global roadmap for advancing women's rights, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and as well as gender equality for the post-2015 development agenda.

Women with disability must be integral to these global roadmaps to ensure that our specific issues and concerns are recognised and addressed. We must not be left behind!


PWDA and WWDA provided regular updates from the meetings and activities. The links below will guide you to them.
