UN Women India an overview


UN Women works in India to make the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals a reality for women and girls and stands behind women's equal participation in all aspects of life, focusing on the following strategic priorities:

  1. Women lead, participate in, and benefit equally from governance systems, and live free from all forms of gender-based violence;
  2. Women have income security, decent work, and economic autonomy, and marginalized women and young women have access to, participate in and achieve quality learning, entrepreneurship and employment; and
  3. All women and girls benefit from the implementation of a comprehensive and dynamic set of norms, policies and standards that promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

UN Women's Office in India, based in New Delhi, works with the Government of India, other UN agencies, civil society, the private sector and influencers to achieve India's strategic priorities for women's advancement. Our programmes focus on upholding women's human rights and providing opportunities for women and girls to live up to their full potential.
