"With the leadership of Anglican Women's Empowerment (AWE) and in partnership with the Office of the Anglican Observer at the United Nations and the Office of Women's Ministries of the Episcopal Church, a delegation was formed for the historic 10-year review of the [1995] Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA). Called a `resource for dialogue on a Christian response to injustice in the world', the DVD and its study guide `are intended as a vehicle for putting faith into action through the framework of the BPfA and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)' according to the guide".

"It is by investing in the girls of today 'that we empower the women of tomorrow', declared Rima Salah, deputy executive director of UNICEF, to 300 women on February 24 [2007] at Trinity Church, Wall Street. The more than 80 Anglican delegates to the United Nation Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) had gathered there with friends ahead of their February 26-March 9 [2007] meeting in New York City." The theme of the Anglican pre-meeting was "Girls Claiming the Future: Hopes and Challenges" and the Anglican presence was co-ordinated by the Office of the Anglican Observer at the United Nations and "Anglican Women's Empowerment (AWE) -- an international grassroots movement founded in 2003 to use the power of women's voices and presence to pursue a human agenda for women worldwide". The 2007 Anglican delegation included "10 teenage girls, aged 13 to 18. All were present at Trinity. Several would speak". The year's theme for the UNCSW was "The Elimination of All Forms of Violence Against Girls". The day before the event at Trinity Wall Street, the delegates attended a standing room only Eucharist in the chapel at the Episcopal Church Center where Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, was celebrant and homilist.

"The wife of the Archbishop of Canterbury, a mother, a theologian and author, Jane Williams shares her vision for the Spouses Conference 2008 in this timely interview by the Editor [Jim Rosenthal]".
An interview with Jane Williams about a conference of approximately 30 bishops' wives, mainly from West Africa, organized by Maria Okrofi, wife of the Primate of the Church of the Province of West Africa. Looking forward to the upcoming Lambeth Conference, Ms. Williams said that "what we really want to look at is empowering and enabling the bishops' spouses to be doing the work that they actually are doing. One of the big things of the conference in Ghana that I hope to take on into the Spouses' Conference is this concept of the absolute unique value of each person's contribution".

A description of the 61st UN Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) meeting "focusing on the economic empowerment of women" (p. 20) which was held in New York City, New York, from 13 to 24 March 2017. An Anglican Communion delegation of 20 women from diverse backgrounds and different countries attended the meeting. "The Anglican Communion group was joined by a delegation from the Episcopal Church, representatives from the Mothers' Union and a group of young adults from two dioceses in Canada (p. 20)" led by the Rev. Laura Marie Piotrowicz. "The Anglican group were among more than 3,900 people attending the two-week event. In total 580 faith-based organisations, non-governmental organisations and civil society groups were represented" (p. 20). "The Anglican Communion offices at the UN organised its own parallel events. Harriet Baka Nathan and Joy Eluzasi from South Sudan gave a presentation on how women of faith are building peace and economic empowerment in their war-torn homeland. Delegates also had the chance to hear from Fereshteh Forough, who runs an organisation educating female students in Afghanistan. And, in the second week, two delegates from Japan -- Miki Hamai and Maya Kobayashi -- spoke on Hiroshima as a place of pilgrimage" (p. 21). "In their formal statement on UNCSW, the Anglican Communion group described the event as 'life-changing' and 'an invaluable experience of spiritual and political benefit to us and our communities'" (p. 21). "The UNCSW's Agreed Conclusions include commitments to ensure women's full and equal participation and leadership in the economy as well as women's right to work and rights at work. The Anglican Communion Director for Women in Church and Society, [the Rev.] Terrie Robinson, attended the event. She was positive but guarded about the outcome" (p. 21). Other Anglican participants included: Noreen Njovu, from Zambia; Mathilde Nkwirikiye, from Burundi; Rachel Fraser, from the Scottish Episcopal Church; Khushbakht Peters, from Pakistan; Rachel Chardon, with the Anglican Communion Office at the UN; and Sar Kabaw Htoo, from Myanmar.

Notes
GFS, also known as the Girls' Friendly Society in many parts of the world, recently concluded its 17th World Council in the Diocese of North Queensland, Australia. The GFS is currently active in 22 countries of the world and dates back to England in 1875 when it was formed to "offer Christian support to the many young women who were moving from rural settings to urban areas to work in the many factories springing up as a result of the Industrial Revolution". "GFS moves its `headquarters' to a different country each year by choosing a host country. The country then nominates the person who will lead GFS as the World President." The immediate past President was Mrs. June Hillier of Australia. The new host country is the United States with Mrs. Adele Ray of Pennsylvania nominated as the World President. Korea will be the following host country. Papua New Guinea was the focus of the GFS World Project for the last three years. Kenya will be the next GFS country focus. "The chosen project is to assist the Diocese of Mombasa with the building of a Diocesan complex to include training areas and offices for GFS".

"Heat, humidity, rain and mud. The less-than-benign weather conditions that Anglican delegates had to contend with appeared trifling when measured against hardship stories told by women at the non-governmental organizations (NGO) forum on women held outside Beijing. Wartime rape, sexual slavery, ethnic cleansing; these were but some of the incidents of violence against women recounted at the gathering. Church representatives were among the more than 30,000 women from all over the world who attended."

41 women from 27 Anglican provinces, representing the Anglican Consultative Council delegation to the 49th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW), met in New York from 28 February to 11 March 2005. They examined the theme from the 1995 Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA), reviewed the implementation of the BPfA and the outcome documents of the special session of the General Assembly entitled `Women 2000 : Gender equality, development and peace for the 21st century'. The Anglican "delegation highlighted four areas of major importance which impeded world-wide development: poverty, poor education, violence and lack of access to good, affordable healthcare." "We call on the ACC [Anglican Consultative Council] to affirm the advancements our governments have made regarding the status of women and encourage them to continue in this work. We strongly recommend the ACC continue to affirm the International Anglican Women's Network (IAWN) and again call on the ACC to adopt the goal of 30% representation of women in decision-making bodies at all levels in our Anglican Communion. We call on the ACC to aim for 50 % representation by the year 2010, to reflect more justly the current makeup of our Anglican global communion".
Article includes several photographs including two on page 15 showing Annette Graydon, past-president of the Canadian Mothers' Union.
