UN Event Addresses Sustainable Development for Women Empowerment

The LGW shares its recommendations translated by the UN in its official languages

The Legion of Good Will (LGW) is taking part in the 63rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. The annual event brings together heads of state, government delegations, UN specialized agencies and civil society organizations to discuss the progress and challenges facing women and girls around the world.

This year, the CSW63 debates "Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls."

At the event, the organization shares its recommendations that have been translated by the UN in its official languages and also published in the 2019 edition of the magazine GOOD WILL Women (available in Spanish, French, English and Portuguese).

In his article "Women Citizens", one of the highlights of the publication, the President of the LGW, José de Paiva Netto, defends:

"It is urgent to strengthen an ecumenism that crosses barriers, appeases hatred, promotes an exchange of experience that instigates global creativity, corroborating the value of social and humanitarian cooperation among partnerships."

The Legion of Good Will is associated with the United Nations' Department of Public Information (DPI) since 1994. In 1999, it achieved general consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and was granted the access to participating in debates and elaborating proposals for some of the main meetings of this international organization.
