UN Women National Committee Canada's vision is to promote equality for all women. The committee works to enhance the work of UN Women in advising countries to implement the United Nations Millennium Development Goals so as to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment by:
• Supporting countries in advancing gender equality in line with national priorities and
• Supporting action on gender equality throughout the United Nations development cooperation system
Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its achievement has enormous socio-economic ramifications. Empowering women fuels thriving economies, spurring productivity and growth.
Yet gender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in every society. Women lack access to decent work and face occupational segregation and gender wage gaps. They are too often denied access to basic education and health care. Women in all parts of the world suffer violence and discrimination. They are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes.
UN Women was created to address such challenges. It is a dynamic and strong champion for women and girls, providing them with a powerful voice at the global, regional and local levels.. We work to improve the lives of women in Canada and around the world.
Your generosity today will provide a better tomorrow for girls and women worldwide.
