UN Women

The main roles of UN Women are 1) To support inter-governmental bodies, such as the Commission on the Status of Women, in their formulation of policies, global standards and norms; 2) To help Member States to implement these standards, standing ready to provide suitable technical and financial support to those countries that request it, and to forge effective partnerships with civil society; and 3) To lead and coordinate the UN system’s work on gender equality as well as promote accountability, including through regular monitoring of system-wide progress.
