The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, or commonly known as the UN Women, is a global champion for women and girls. It consists of 41 Member States, elected by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for a term of three years.
The Entity is mainly engaged in the following areas: Leadership and political participation of women, economic empowerment, as well as peace and security for women. It is also working to realize the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for women and girls. Additionally, it holds the UN system accountable for its commitments to gender equality.
The Entity does not only strive to improve the economic situation but also contemplates the political and social status of women. The debates cover contemporary and crucial issues, such as actions against HIV and AIDS, abating child marriages, providing primary education to girls, or eliminating violence against women.
The UN Women Entity welcomes all delegates who are interested in achieving equality between females and their male counterparts, and who will engage actively in debates in the previously mentioned areas.
