  KFAW acquired an NGO consultative status of ECOSOC from the United Nations in 2002. Since then we have participated in the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) every year. The end of February we visited the UN Headquarters in New York City.
  We participated in the CSW and held an international seminar titled “Empowerment of Women: Best Practices and New Challenges in Japan and the Republic of Korea” with the Chungcheongnam-Do Women’s Policy Development Institute, Korea (CWPDI).KFAW and CWPDI concluded MOU on academic exchange November 2009.

We reported intergovernmental discussion for the improvement of the status of women, activities of NGOs including their messages for Japanese women and details of the joint seminar with CWPDI.
  It was a meaningful meeting where we shared with the audience details of the CSW and the partnership between KFAW & CWPDI.
