The zero draft Agreed Conclusions for the 57th session of the Commission for the Status of Women (CSW57) is out now for comment, this formulates the basis for negotiations at CSW57.  The theme this year is the Elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls.

If you have any suggestions for language to include, based on previously agreed international agreements or conventions, please share these with the CSW57 AWAVA delegation by emailing AWAVA, please include the source reference.  Shorter language insertions, especially key words to incorporate, are more likely to be considered.

We will share this information with the Community Sector representatives on the Australian Government Delegation for their discussions with the Australian Government.

Comments by 20 February please.
