The Bureau for the 62nd session (2018) of the Commission on the Status of Women comprises the following members:

        Status of Women, UN Women convened an Expert Group Meeting on the priority theme:
        “Challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural
        women and girls.” The Expert Group Meeting was co-convened by the International Fund for
