NSWP facilitated a delegation from member organisations to attend the 64th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). The 64th CSW session was cut from almost two weeks to one day following the outbreak of COVID-19, and was attended by government delegations only. This meant that all side and parallel events were cancelled and the expected robust discussions between community organisations and governments, and the essential input from civil society to hold governments accountable, was entirely absent.
Despite these extreme circumstances and the severe disruptions to the planned programme of activities, some of the NSWP Delegation successfully took part in a wide range of independently organised meetings and events with allies and partners, continuing to advocate for the respect, protection and fulfilment of sex workers’ human rights and, going forward, the meaningful inclusion of sex workers’ and their issues within the Beijing+25 agenda.
