Remarks by Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuk, Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women, on the Opening of the Sixty-Fourth Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW64)/Beijing+25 (2020), 2nd plenary meeting.


Phlumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of the UN Women, the agency that said "women are radically impatient for action that improves their lives. They see the progress made but also that it is accompanied by push back and erosion of gains. They see that the scale and pace of change has not been what it should be. Younger women do not want to go through the experiences of their elders. The elders are tired of waiting."

UN Women supports all aspects of the Commission's work and it facilitate the participation of civil society representatives.

A functional commission of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Commission on the Status of Women was established on 21 June 1946.

The CSW is instrumental in promoting women's rights, documenting the reality of women's lives throughout the world, and shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women. In 1996, ECOSOC expanded the Commission's mandate and decided that it should take a leading role in monitoring and reviewing progress and problems in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and in mainstreaming a gender perspective in UN activities.

During the Commission's annual two-week session, representatives of UN Member States, civil society organizations and UN entities gather at UN headquarters in New York. They discuss progress and gaps in the implementation of the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the key global policy document on gender equality, and the 23rd special session of the General Assembly held in 2000 (Beijing+5), as well as emerging issues that affect gender equality and the empowerment of women. Member States agree on further actions to accelerate progress and promote women's enjoyment of their rights in political, economic, and social fields. The outcomes and recommendations of each session are forwarded to ECOSOC for follow-up.
