UN Women's statement
Thank you for making us aware of your upcoming newsletter edition which will reference UN Women’s private sector engagement.
- UN Women works with a number of private sector partners through various vehicles to encourage private sector action that advances the rights of CEDAW and the objectives of the Beijing Platform for Action.
- Ending all forms of gender-based violence and abuse is at the heart of UN Women’s mission. Our work is rooted in improving policies and practices in this regard, including placing the rights and dignity of victims at the forefront of our response efforts.
- While we cannot comment on specific cases, we urgently call for systemic change to achieve gender equality across all industries, and we will continue to advocate to ensure decent work for all.
