Make A Donation | UN Women New Zealand

This is looking at empowering women market vendors at the Honiara market to become organised in order to have a voice in the management of the market. We welcome all donations in support of the work we are doing in the Pacific and for that which UNW New York does for women around the world. You can specify that you would like it to go towards the establishment of a new project in the Solomon Islands.

Violence Against Women | UN Women New Zealand

It has many manifestations — from the most universally prevalent forms of domestic and sexual violence, to harmful practices, abuse during pregnancy, so-called honour killings and other types of femicide. In 1994, a World Bank study on ten selected risk factors facing girls and women in this age group, found rape and domestic violence more dangerous than cancer, motor vehicle accidents, war and malaria.

Millennium Development Goals | UN Women New Zealand

Gender equality is the third goal, but it is also integral to achieving all eight MDGs, from preventing the spread of HIV to sustaining the environment in the face of climate change. Gender equality is a key concern and we ensure that we contribute to sections of the CEDAW alternate report that is coordinated through the National Council of Women. Monitoring CEDAW compliance is an important way to check on progress with the MDGs.
