Commission on the Status of Women

New York
March 12-23, 2018


9000 women from around the world come to discuss
women's issues and solutions!
This is not a "Christian event" but we find that women's issues are women's issues whether Christian or not. And as we learn about solutions, we can bring them back to our contexts and bring these solutions to a whole new level as we share them with the good news of God's love!

Last year, BWA Women organized a contingent to attend. Twenty-one women from thirteen different countries participated! Because Baptist World Alliance is recognized by the United Nations, we have access to twenty passes for this event.

this year, you could be one of those attending!

If you are interested, please contact Moreen Sharp at for more information and to get a free pass to attend this amazing conference!  Registration is open now. If you would like a pass to the United Nations, we will need to hear from you before the middle of January.

  • Hundreds of sessions to choose from (usually in panel format) 10 per block and there are six blocks per day!
  • We usually attend only the first 4 or 5 days as there is so much information you can't attain it all!
  • An ecumenical chapel service is held every morning.
  • We try to find as economical accommodation as possible in the area of the United Nations
  • The conference is free but airfare, accommodation and meals would be your expenses.
