Mission Statement

The aim of the US Women’s Caucus at the UN is for progressive US-based NGOs to have a larger, louder, smarter voice at the United Nations through means such as written statements, reviews of UN documents, and joint recommendations to the US Mission, the UN Commission on the Status of Women, and other UN bodies.  To support this aim, we intend to reach into US states to promote and collaborate on the UN women’s agenda and advocacy for gender equality with women and girls of every class, race, culture, creed, sexual orientation, and gender identity, including those with disabilities.  Membership in the US Women’s Caucus is open to US-based NGOs and individuals who are committed to the principles of CEDAW and the Beijing Platform for Action.
