A Time of Transformation

The political, social and economic transformations of the past year have underscored the need for women’s participation and gender equality. In 2011, our support helped bring record numbers of women to the polls in Egypt, to extend women’s presence in politics, and to strengthen women’s voices in municipal affairs.

Globally, the UN General Assembly agreed that countries should take and report on concrete steps to increase women’s political participation. More than 1,000 women in one region of Pakistan gained decent jobs through a UN Women-backed programme, and businesses started to see their value as employees. In Central America, over 130 microfinancing institutions began tailoring services to indigenous and rural women.

Through 2012 and beyond, UN Women’s top priorities will be a push for rapid progress in women’s political participation and economic empowerment, bolstered by our thematic focus on ending violence against women, broadening women’s role in peace and security, and making gender equality central to public plans and budgets. Overall, we aim to protect and advance hard-won gains for gender equality and the empowerment of women.
