The Cultural Committee plays a key role in realizing WCSS objectives: in particular those related to spreading cultural, social, legal and political awareness of womens rights as well participating in all activities upholding these rights.
To achieve its objectives, the committee holds symposiums, training courses work shops and conferences in Kuwait. The committee has already held three regional conferences on Woman in the Gulf Cooperative Council (GCC) area and the Arabian Peninsula in 1975, 1981 and 1984. It also held the first and second conferences on the Role of Women in Cultural, Social and Economic Development after the liberation of Kuwait, in 1994 and again in 2001.
The Cultural Committee represents the Society in conferences, symposiums, training courses and other cultural activities to which the society is invited locally, regionally and internationally.
The committee has participated in all of the UN World Conferences on Women starting with the first conference held in 1975 in Mexico City, the second in 1981 in Copenhagen, the third in 1985 in Nairobi and finally the fourth in 1995 in Beijing.
The UN has granted the WCSS special consultative status in 2004 , and has approved its participation in all future conferences; thus it has become qualified to attend the preliminary meetings before the conferences as well as the follow up meetings, and occasionally even vote on pertinent issues. Moreover, the Cultural Committee has represented the WCSS in the World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa in 2001, the World Summit on Sustainable development in Geneva, in 2001 and the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2002.
The committee also releases data about events and issues related to women and the community and follows-up the implementation of international conventions related to women and approved by Kuwait such as the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights.
