UN Women annual report 2012-2013

UN Women


UN Women, as the world's champion of gender equality and women's empowerment, works to stop the causes and reduce the consequences of gender inequality. Our unique mandate means that we help in establishing international norms and standards, and then assist countries to take actions making these real in women's lives. We cannot do this alone. Through coordination with our UN partners and our close relationships with governments, civil society and others, we leverage knowledge, resources and influence, so that gender equality has its rightful role at the centre of all efforts to advance human progress.

As this report highlights, our programmes have increased women's leadership, enlarged economic opportunities, stopped gender-based violence, brought women into peace and security processes, and increased funding for gender equality in national budgets.

In 2012, with UN Women's assistance, women gained seats in seven national elections. Twenty-six countries reformed laws and policies increasing women's access to economic assets and social protection, while 30 improved services for survivors of gender-based violence.

Fifteen nations incorporated gender equality priorities in national plans and budgets. These achievements come against a global backdrop of continued improvements—such as historic numbers of women in political leadership and a record 125 countries having adopted laws against domestic violence.
