Foreign OfficeFM Bilawal to visit New York for Conference on Women’s Rights

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will visit New York in the context of the Conference on “Women in Islam: Understanding the rights and Identity of Women in the Islamic World”.

This Conference being held on March 8, 2023 is an initiative of Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.


It is being convened by Pakistan in its capacity as the chair of the OIC Council of Ministers at the UN Headquarters on the sidelines of the 67th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).

The objective of the Conference is to bridge the perception-reality gap on the rights of women in Islam and to counter gender stereotypes that are often associated with Muslim women.

The Conference will celebrate the experiences and successes of iconic Muslim women so as to inspire younger generations around the world.

The Conference will have High-Level and Policy Dialogue segments.

The Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto will chair the High-Level segment.

The Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad said that we expect ministerial level participation from OIC Member States and non OIC states, in addition to the leadership of the United Nations, UN Women and other international organizations.

On March 10, Bilawal Bhutto will headline an event on Islamophobia in New York.

It may be recalled that last year, at the initiative of Pakistan, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 15 as the Day to Combat Islamophobia.
