Introduction

The United Nations Economic and Social Council established the Commission on the Status of Women in June 1946. The Commission reports directly to the Council, and through the Council to the General Assembly. The Commission, which originally had 15 members, grew in several stages to its current size of 45 members. The allocation of seats is based on a formula designed to ensure balanced geographical representation.
