Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

 United Nations Secretary-General's Campaign
to End Violence Against Women

Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon
There is no blanket approach to fighting violence against women. Each nation must devise its own strategy. But there is one universal truth, applicable to all countries, cultures and communities: violence against women is never acceptable, never excusable, never tolerable.

SECRETARY-GENERAL BAN KI-MOON

UNiTE brings together a host of UN offices and agencies to end violence against women:

Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights [OHCHR]
