UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, 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.

UN Women has launched a regional program “Women, Peace and Security in the Arab States” in partnership with the Government of Finland. This program seeks to leverage the global normative framework on women, peace and security to address the women’s rights and gender equality challenges faced in the region by countries both affected by crisis and transition, and those supporting communities displaced by crisis.
