UN Women is advancing on a speedy way to ensure that equality is the backbone of all issues in the world. Equality is balance. Balance is what makes the world and its richness move toward equality in distributing bounties that mankind did not create but that only GOD gave to mankind to test his egoism, selfishness, greediness an most of all his HUMANITY.
Humanity being the SEED of Equality.
Thank you United Nations for allowing NGOs and Civil Societies, Governments, and the Peoples of the world be aware of the inequality=injustice.

Autonomiser le travail des femmes c'est leur fournir non seulement les ressources nécessaires mais également les utiliser de façon à ce qu'elles réussissent économiquement. Ainsi il faut leur donner de meilleurs emplois, les éduquer et les former professionnellement, leur offrir des possibilités de créer et de gérer des entreprises, faciliter l'acquisition des compétences, participer aux processus décisionnel, prôner l’égaliser des sexes, du travail et des salaires. Par ailleurs il faut encourager la création de coopératives par les femmes dans les pays du tiers monde car ces coopératives sont génératrices d'emplois et de richesses. Une fois créées, ces coopératives doivent être soutenues et financer aussi bien par les gouvernants que par les bailleurs de fonds. Les femmes dans leurs coopératives doivent aussi bénéficier de crédits bancaires pour développer leurs initiatives. C'est ce qui permettra aux femmes d'être plus autonomes pour faire face à leurs dépenses personnelles et à celles de leur famille et de leur communauté.Vive les femmes. La contribution des femmes dans le développement humain, économique et social est importante; il faut donc un véritable partenariat avec l'initiative économique de celles-ci afin de transformer leur engagement en leur donnant des outils nécessaires pour bâtir leur propre réussite et leur indépendance économique.

My team of young girls Leaders together with the board and a vast platform of the community have meditated about the deep meaning of "Women's economic empowerment in the changing world of work".
Indeed the women's economic empowerment have to be leaded by a "Free Service Dispatching Networks Women Service- U.N.F.D.W.S. ( United Nations Free Dispatching Women's Service)
This Free Service will help build women's ROADMAP toward their Economic Empowerment.
I have all the research, the plan of action and the strategies to reach the best results with little funds.

After Quito and Habitat III Conference, we are glad to be part of this session where SDGs and priorities related to Women and Girls Status in the World are waiting for concrete actions/solutions at local and regional level. May this Commission be strong enough to set-up more inclusive dialogue with NGOs and other stakeholders. People in many countries in the World are waiting for effective actions to be part of change. We do not have the right to deceive them. The CEREPPOL NGO is committed to make this 61th Session of CSW a success.
Best Regards to CSW Commissioners.

The priority theme has been well thought of. The women's economic empowerment in the changing world of work is of prime importance because this will help curb the influx of children into the streets when the men die, leaving their poor jobless wives stranded with no means of sustainability to afford food, education, medical care and shelter, including other amenities , for their little ones.
Buddies Association of Volunteers for Orphans, Disabled and Abandoned Children (BAVODAC), therefore deems it necessary to be represented at the event.
May the Almighty God bless the Commission.
Best regards
CEO-BAVODAC

UNWomen have taken up a humungous job when trying to build gender equality. The theme thought of is truly a priority. Gender budgetting in itself is such a complicated task. We at INSA-India strongly feel that it needs to start with sensitizing both boys and girls, and others. Somehow gender equality has been only looked at from what men should not do and what women should be given opportunities for. How do boys and men learn how to manage age old freedoms with responsibilities and enable/promote an equal dialogue and space is something that needs to begin at school. Not as a one off but as a comprehensive curriculum that is practical and thought provoking.

We are glad to be part of the session where the SDGs and priorities related to women and girls are being discussed with a more inclusive dialogue with NGOs and other stakeholders. In addition to this, lets do a concrete programme in each country too through the years. INSA-India finds it important to bring to the session what girls and boys, children in our child parliaments say about the solutions going forward.
