Since 1992 as the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), and since 2010 as the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women, UN Women in Brazil has been working with the federal and sub-national governments, Congress and Judiciary to advance equality of rights and opportunities for women and girls. UN Women supports implementation of the national development agenda and international women’s human rights commitments three areas: 

  • Gender-responsive governance and women’s leadership 

  • Women’s economic empowerment

We work with grassroots women organizations and support their development. We work through integrated normative and technical support, capacity building, social mobilization and advocacy.
