Justice Equality Rights Access International (JERA) works in a human rights framework and is strongly committed to the CSW process, and the support of the Beijing Platform for Action, Post 2015 Development Agenda and CEDAW.
JERA promotes Justice, Equity, Rights and Access to bring about positive change for women and communities. Working in Australia, the Asia Pacific Region and internationally to promote positive action to achieve gender equality, JERA uses a practical and rights-based approach to directly advance women’s participation in policy discussions and change. JERA works in partnership with groups and networks of women and men towards common goals and outcomes to advance gender equality and brings this voice into UN processes including CSW. Our vision is for gender equality in all areas of civil life, society, the economy and culture.
About the Commission
The Commission on the Status of Women (hereafter referred to as “CSW” or “the Commission”) is a functional commission of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It is the principal global policy-making body dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women. Every year, representatives of Member States gather at United Nations Headquarters in New York to evaluate progress on gender equality, identify challenges, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment worldwide.
