1947 - First Session of the Commission on the Status of Women
From the beginning the Commission members also built close working relationships with the international human rights treaty bodies, the Commission on Human Rights, the Social Commission and the Sub-Commission on the Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities, and specialized agencies such as UNESCO and UNICEF. The chairperson of the Commission was invited to attend the sessions of the Commission on Human Rights devoted to finalizing the draft international bill of human rights and copies of preliminary drafts of the international bill were circulated among members of the Commission.
