Flagship Programmes

Our 12 Flagship Programming Initiatives sit within five strategic impact areas to help achieve gender equality. 

UN Women Programmes empower women and girls
and give them a voice, to break down the barriers they face.

We know that achieving gender equality will be hard work. But we know the results will be worth it.

When you empower women, whole communities benefit. When women have a say in issues that affect them, society changes for the better. When women are involved in national decision-making, they create more peaceful societies.
