The next edition of UN Women’s flagship report, Progress of the World’s Women, will be launched on 25 June 2019. The report theme, “Families in a changing world”, explores how laws, policies, and public action can support families in ways that enable women’s rights to resources, bodily integrity, and voice. Through high-quality research, innovative data analysis, and compelling case studies, this extensive report shows the plurality of family structures across the world and showcases vital actions to formulate family-friendly policies that support women’s full enjoyment of their rights.
