About the product

This report is a first-of-its-kind initiative of the United Nations Inter-Agency Network on Women and Gender Equality (IANWGE), the single largest network of gender focal points in the UN system. It presents a critical stocktaking of 51 UN entities’ support for implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, showcasing key actions in areas such as women’s empowerment, the elimination of violence against women and girls, and the improvement and expansion of women’s education, political participation and entrepreneurship. As this report makes clear, UN system support for achieving gender equality remains critical, and urgent, sustained, and coordinated action is needed to safeguard the well-being of women and girls everywhere.
