THE UNITED NATIONS ENTITY
FOR
GENDER EQUALITY AND THE EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN

The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, also known as UN Women, is a United Nations entity working for gender equality and the empowerment of women. UN Women advocates for the rights of women and girls, and focuses on a wide array of issues, including violence against women and violence against LGBTIQ+ people.

UN Women was established by the merger of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM, established in 1976) and other entities, and became operational in January 2011.[2] Former President of Chile Michelle Bachelet was the inaugural executive director, and Sima Sami Bahous is the current executive director.[3] As with UNIFEM previously, UN Women is a member of the United Nations Development Group.[4]
