The last of these significant milestones took place twenty years ago.

Sheryl Samberg argued that women need to “sit at the table” where decisions are made. At the 59th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW59), many women sat at the table. In fact, mostly women sat at the table. At some events, only women sat at the table. Most of the officials, representatives of nongovernmental organization, panel speakers and participants were women. Where were the men? Where were the intersex people?

Talking to fellow young women is easy. We have lived through similar experiences, we share common cultural references. There is a sense of camaraderie that arises immediately when you meet a young woman at a place like CSW, when you know that a shared passion for gender equality and women’s rights brought you to this common place at this common time. After two weeks at CSW, I have met wonderful young women that I will stay in touch with. We will continue to share experiences and talk about our common passion, and discuss the challenges we face as young women in today’s world.

The 21st century has been hailed as the century of women. Yet a recent Google search shows just how much prejudice and discrimination towards women and gender equality persist. Women still bear the brunt of poverty, war, disease, and famine. Women and girls are done with the rhetoric. They want meaningful action and implementation now.

Throughout her different engagements during CSW 59, Executive Director of UN Women Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka has repeated time and time again: AGENCY MATTERS. In the fight for gender equality and women’s rights, one person can make a difference in bringing change to their school, their community, their cities, and their countries. It is for this reason that the gender equality agenda focuses on the need to create the necessary spaces and conditions for women to become political leaders, and while there have been many victories since the Beijing Declaration in 1995, the challenges to being a woman in a political leadership position remain such that the gap is far from being breached.

This was my fifth year participating in the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), held each year in March at the United Nations. This year was particularly important as it not only is a review of progress made over the past 20 years in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action developed in 1995 at the historic Fourth World Conference on Women, but also focuses on opportunities for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women in the post-2015 development agenda. 2015 is quite a milestone year for women since it is also the 15th anniversary of UN SCR 1325 that urges the increased participation of women in all aspects of peacebuilding and incorporation of gender perspectives in all peace and security efforts.
