Fourteen young women from across the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) shared their experiences after participating in the 60th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) held March 10–18 in New York. The delegation was organized through a partnership between the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations, Racial Ethnic & Women’s Ministries and Presbyterian Women. Their presence was made possible due to the special consultative status the PC(USA) holds through the U.N. Economic and Social Council.
During its 60th session the commission addressed its priority theme, women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development, and evaluated progress toward a key goal of the 57th session, elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls. Read full story.

Racial Ethnic & Women's Ministries pledges to work with Presbyterian Women and Bread for the World to support Women of Faith 1,000 Days Movement
The first 1,000 days of a child's life, from the start of a woman's pregnancy until the child's second birthday, have an enormous impact on a child's ability to grow, learn and rise out of poverty. Racial Ethnic & Women's Ministries, in partnership with Presbyterian Women in the PC(USA), Bread for the World, and the 1,000 Days Movement, is working to raise awareness and identify resources for Presbyterians to learn more about maternal and child nutrition during this critical period. PW and RE&WM have pledged, through its partnership with Bread's Women of Faith for the 1,000 Days, to hold conversations around the importance of child nutrition, and communicate to Presbyterians and others about the 1,000 Days movement.
