UN Women is the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.

The organization supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality, and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to ensure that the standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women and girls worldwide.

UN Women has developed a series of flagship programmes (PDF in Arabic) to deepen its efforts and achieve transformative results. These high-impact, scalable initiatives build on and supplement UN Women’s ongoing programming work. Using a human-rights-based approach focused on strengthening the voice of women and girls, they seek to remove structural barriers to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
