Gender Terminology

The Task Force was initiated with the over-arching goal of supporting the goals of the NGO CSW Committee in upholding the human rights of women and girls and advocating for these rights within UN and intergovernmental agencies and international civil society organizations. The development of a tool kit on the accurate use of terminology on women and girls in UN processes was its initial mandate. They presented a well-researched parallel event for the CSW 65 Forum in 2021. The Task Force has been temporarily paused until further notice.
