UN Women is the United Nations Entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women with a mission to ensure that globally, all women and girls have equal opportunities.   
Women’s empowerment is about ending violence, responding to women’s urgent needs in an emergency, providing training and supporting women’s employment, leadership and economic development.  
UN Women Aotearoa New Zealand is one of thirteen National Committees spread out globally, who contribute to the mission of UN Women. Our role in Aotearoa New Zealand is to mobilise women’s empowerment efforts through raising awareness about women’s issues and fundraising toward UN Women’s programmes and policies in our neighbouring Pacific countries.
