Advancement of Women

Grounded in the vision of equality of the United Nations Charter, DESA's Division for the Advancement of Women advocates the improvement of the status of women of the world, and the achievement of their equality with men as equal actors, partners, and beneficiaries of sustainable development, human rights, peace and security.

The Commission on the Status of Women is a functional commission of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women. It is the principal global policy-making body. Every year, representatives of Member States gather at United Nations Headquarters in New York to evaluate progress on gender equality, identify challenges, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and advancement of women worldwide.
