UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
UN Women work in Ukraine focuses on supporting the Government and civil society organizations (CSOs) in advancing gender equality and implementation of the national and international commitments on gender equality and women’s human rights.

The project goal is to enhance women’s meaningful participate in and equally benefit from political, peace and security processes at all levels in Ukraine. This will be achieved via supporting meaningful participation of women and their organizations in by supporting government at all levels in implementing WPS commitments in sustainable and inclusive ways.
