UN Women is the newly established United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UNW), grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations. UNW works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, the UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.
