The Commission on the Status of Women is over for another year and feminists are demanding stronger political commitment.
“The year 2015 is the start of a make-or-break period for gender equality and women’s empowerment. We have to complete the work of the last 20 years. There is a great deal of unfinished business.
These were the words of Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women at the 59th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW59).
