• Commission on Status of Women
The Salvation Army, through its International Social Justice Commission (ISJC) based in New York, is again participating in the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
This year’s 67th session takes place from 6-17 March, with the theme “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”.
Over these two weeks, Salvation Army representatives from around the world will attend virtual and in-person meetings on social and moral issues relating to the central theme of women and technology, organised by international experts.
The Salvation Army is participating in three parallel events to be viewed by the attendees of the Commission on the Status of Women. These events will be hosted by The International Social Justice Girls Group, The International Women’s Social Justice Group, and ISJC Director Colonel Ian Swan.
Members of the ISJC have had an active role in producing and coordinating the booth for the Commission on the Status of Women. Included in this exhibit is information on Salvation Army initiatives relating to education, girl advocacy, fair trade, as well as a spotlight on the importance of music and the arts in our organisation.
