The voice of women workers at the UN

Union women from around the world are preparing to attend the 58th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW58) taking place in at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 10-21 March 2014.

This year's session of the UNCSW will focus on access and participation of women and girls to education, training, science and technology and the promotion of women’s equal access to full employment and decent work.  

Trade union delegates from EI, PSI, ITUC and IFJ will call on member states to ensure that gender equality is adequately addressed in the framework of the new post-2015 sustainable development goals, through a stand-alone gender equality goal and the integration of gender specific targets and indicators across all goals.
