UN Women In Bangladesh

A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established by the UN General Assembly in 2010 to accelerate progress on gender equality and women's empowerment worldwide. UN Women's efforts are based on the fundamental belief that every woman has the right to live a life free from violence, poverty, and discrimination, and that sustainable development cannot be achieved without gender equality.

UN Women in Bangladesh works to promote gender equality in all spheres—political, economic and social— through four priority areas: promoting women's income security, decent work and economic autonomy; ending violence against women and girls; sustainable peace and resilience, and humanitarian action; and making gender equality a key part of national development planning and budget allocation.
