This year the priority theme of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is: social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

The Holy See Mission will be hosting 5 Side Events during CSW 63 that delve deeper into these theme and how to contribute to the advancement of women around the world in ways that honor their integral human development.
