Because I am a man is an advocacy and behavioral change campaign which calls on men to become more active in caregiving, childcare, domestic work, prevention of violence against women and girls, and broader promotion of gender equality.

Economic security is critical to women’s overall well-being and contributes to educational attainment, health, agency, family stability, and community engagement. To achieve economic empowerment, efforts to expand the scale, type and quality of job opportunities are necessary, as well as facilitating conducive policies and legislations, and ensuring compatibility with family life in terms of maternity, child and elderly care provisions and facilities. It is against this background that UN Women and ILO have developed a multi-country programme to promote decent employment opportunities for women in Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine by addressing the structural causes of inequalities that women face in the region.
