Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women
PDF File Size: 495 KB | Download   
Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of whole families and communities and to improved prospects for the next generation. Therefore, it is very critical to empower and capacitate women in general and poor women from the discriminated castes and ethnicities in particular, address issues of human rights violation of women, and also ensure women’s effective participation and presence in all phases of reconciliation, reintegration and recovery process.

Gender equality is, first and foremost, a human rights issue. Women are entitled to live in dignity and in freedom from want and from fear. Empowering women is an indispensable strategy for advancing development and reducing poverty. Monitoring progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment is therefore of great importance. UNFPA had commissioned a 1997 study on Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women. This study, a review of the progress
made so far and an update of the 1997 publication, is a step further towards UNFPA’s commitment to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment.
