Background:

UN Women plays an innovative and catalytic role in the State of Palestine since its inception in 1997 as UNIFEM. UN Women focuses its activities on one overarching goal, namely to empower Palestinian women and girls and to allow them to enjoy their human rights.  In support of this goal and thoroughly taking into consideration the specificities of the context in Palestine, UN Women concentrates its efforts and interventions toward the realization of three strategic goals: Engendering humanitarian action and increasing the effective leadership and participation of women in peace and security; supporting women's income security, decent work and economic autonomy; and promoting a life free of violence for women and girls in Palestine.  For this, UN Women in collaboration with its partners aim to contribute to a legislative and policy framework that prevent violence and empower those affected by violence to recover; address structural barriers preventing women from economic participation and provide women entrepreneurs with the needed skills, financial resources and partnership to access a more equal share of the market; and ensure that policy makers have the capacity to effectively implement, monitor and track women’s peace and security commitments and place women’s rights at the center of humanitarian action in Palestine.
