Impact stories and thematic briefs

Authors/editor(s): UN Women

As the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women around the world, UN Women stands behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life, focusing on priority areas such as: increasing women’s leadership and participation; ending violence against women; engaging women in all aspects of peace and security processes; enhancing women’s economic empowerment; and making gender equality central to national development planning and budgeting.

The following Thematic briefs outline UN Women’s work towards each of these key areas, focusing on solutions and illustrating selected results.

The second set of briefs, dubbed Impact stories, illustrates the human impact of a selection of UN Women programmes implemented at the global, regional or national level. These stories give voice to the many women and girls across the globe whose lives have been changed for the better as a result of UN Women's work on the field.
