Apply for the Presbyterian delegation to CSW

Presbyterians will again join Ecumenical Women partners to advocate for justice for women at the 59th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. The Commission will tentatively meet March 9–20, 2015, at UN headquarters in New York City. Related events will take place at venues near the UN headquarters.

The Commission will review progress made in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, 20 years after its adoption at the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995. The Commission will address current challenges that affect the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, as well as opportunities for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women in the post-2015 development agenda.

mother and child nutritionStart a conversation about child and maternal nutrition

The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are a critical window for creating a healthier and more prosperous future. Bread for the World's 1,000 Days movement promotes targeted action and investment to improve nutrition for mothers and children in the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. And you can help.

By educating others (through a conversation or even a minute-for-mission), you can raise awareness around this topic. Download conversation starters to help focus your discussion on child and maternal nutrition. And get suggestions for action and advocacy to improve nutrition for women and children.


Celebrate PW’s 25th anniversary with a $25 gift

25th anniversary pinIn July 1988, Presbyterian Women was created, bringing together the best of the women’s organizations from the two denominations that merged to become the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).  So for 25 years now, our beloved organization has been witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom and transforming lives around the world. And of course, this young group is carrying on the more-than-200-year tradition of Presbyterian women meeting, praying and acting together in shared love of God!

July 2014 marked the end of our year-long celebration of Presbyterian Women’s first 25 years, but if you haven't yet celebrated, you still can! Learn more about the logos, online celebrations and resources available to commemorate 25 years of Presbyterian Women!

If you'd still like to make a gift to the $25 for 25 campaign (which includes matching gifts in many synods!) give online or send a check, with “$25 for 25” written in the memo line, to Presbyterian Women Remittance Processing, PO Box 643652, Pittsburgh PA 15264-3652.
