Woman Empowerment

In November 2013, the UNCT in India launched the UN Joint India Advocacy and Communications Campaign to end violence against women and girls. This year the UNCT joined forces again to initiate both awareness generating campaigns and advocacy initiatives with over 6,300 participants. We are proud of the nation’s record on women’s human rights. Even so, we acknowledge there is more work to be done—especially in meeting the challenges faced by Indigenous women and girls, reducing violence against women, improving women’s economic security, and ensuring women have an equal place in society alongside men.
