image of On the verge of gender equality

The women’s movement of the twenty-first century is committed to a visionary agenda for the human rights of women and girls everywhere. Injustice against women and girls, which has plagued humankind for millennia, has long been met by protest movements around the world, many of them predating the United Nations. At its founding, however, Member States set out to position the United Nations as a catalyst for bold initiatives to help bring about gender equality. Already in 1946, the UN Commission on the Status of Women assumed its role as the principal global intergovernmental body dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.
