The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) requested Their Story is Our Story: Giving Voice to Refugees (TSOS) to contribute stories about the heroism of refugee mothers to share at the organization's sixty-first session in New York City, which concluded today, 24 March 2017.
 
CSW organizer Amanda Oaks said, “Our greatest goal in this project is to shine a spotlight on the strength of mothers, and nowhere is that more profoundly demonstrated than with the refugee mother who has sacrificed so much for her children.” 
 
TSOS submitted a number of stories with photos regarding gallant refugee mothers who exhibit maternal strength and bravery.  Their stories are many and profound.
 
Representatives from all regions of the world attended the two-week CSW session at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
