India Member UN-CSW

India beats China to become member of UN’s Commission on Status of Women

India has been elected as the member of the Commission on Status of Women (CSW), a body of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). 

India will be a member of the prestigious body for four years from 2021 to 2025.

India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations T S Tirumurti said, it is a ringing endorsement of India’s commitment to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in all the endeavours.

India, Afghanistan and China had contested the elections to the Commission on Status of Women. While India and Afghanistan won the ballot among the 54 members, China failed to cross the half-way mark.

The CSW is the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.

A functional commission of the ECOSOC, it was established by ECOSOC resolution 11(II) of 21 June 1946. 

It promotes women’s rights, highlights the reality of women’s lives throughout the world and helps in shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women.

45 member states of the United Nations serve as members of the Commission at any one time.
