We expect CSW64 to be the biggest gathering of feminists yet! We will maximize our time to speak to feminists, delegates, international organisations, businesses and other civil society organisations in other sectors that need to be brought into the movement. We will continue to shine a spotlight on the multiple and intersecting challenges faced day-to-day by everyday women and advocate for lasting institutional and cultural systems changes that galvanize women’s influence. Inclusive algorithms are needed for an inclusive digital future.
