Ecumenical Women (EW) at the United Nations was established on the occasion of the five-year review of the Beijing Platform for Action (Beijing +5) to enhance and reinforce the collaboration of progressive churches and ecumenical organizations to advocate for the rights of women at the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW). Every year since then, it has engaged in advocacy, advocacy training and worship at the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women held at UN headquarters in New York. EW also collaborates with UN Women and other UN agencies throughout the year.
