UN Women Annual Report: Progress and Equality for All
Authors/editor(s): UN Women
In the United Nations system, UN Women is the only entity solely dedicated to achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls. It helps advance internationally agreed standards on gender equality and support countries in translating them into practice through laws, policies and services. Reactionary forces continue to rise. Yet everywhere, women and girls are on the move, calling for more progress. Governments, businesses, civil society, faithbased organizations, men’s groups and other allies are coming on board to achieve gender equality, many through partnerships with UN Women.
In 2018-2019, the backdrop for UN Women’s mission is a time of immense challenges in the world. Inequalities remain acute. All over the world, people join forces with UN Women because they trust us as a champion of gender equality and women’s empowerment. They value our expertise and reach, and our historic relationship with feminist and women’s rights movements. The UN Women Annual Report underlines why it has never been more important to get results for those who suffer multiple forms of discrimination.
