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.


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

United Nations Action Against Sexual Violence [UN Action]

UN Action unites the work of 12 UN entities with the goal of ending sexual violence in conflict. It seeks to galvanize global concern about rape as a weapon of war and speed up the response of the peacekeeping, humanitarian and development communities to violations of women’s rights in conflict and post-conflict settings. It is a concerted effort by the UN system to improve coordination and accountability, amplify programming and advocacy, and support national efforts to prevent sexual violence and respond effectively to the needs of survivors.
