The theme for this year's Commission on the Status of Women is "Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development". In this context and to celebrate International Women's Day, the gender team at the OECD Development Centre is organising a high-level event on 9 March, 15:00–17:00 Paris time, on "Gender Equality, Social Norms and Inclusive Growth".
