UN Women, as the UN agency with the mandate to work on gender equality, is responsible for leading and coordinating United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world and at the country level.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.

 

Government of India under the visionary leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister is committed to empowering women, and has taken various transformative steps in this direction. These include the MUDRA scheme for giving interest free loans to the poor, Ujjwala scheme whereby women were given free gas connections to free them from the drudgery of smoke-filled cooking, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao to educate the girl child, as well as abolition of triple talaq to give dignity to women.

 

The Government has also taken various steps to tackle Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in its different forms including domestic violence, intimate partner violence, violence against children, sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment, and at different sites- private, public, work and online. The UN Secretary General has also made an appeal to the leaders of the Members States to put ‘Women and Girls Safety first’, and centre-stage gender responsive measures in their plans to address the challenge of COVID-19, to build back better and equal world. India was among 140 countries to endorse the call.

 

In this context, UN Women, along with three sister UN agencies – UNICEF, WHO and UNHCR, initiated a joint Programme under the Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) to prevent and respond to SGBV by scaling up and strengthening the ongoing interventions, given the impact of COVID-19. The Programme has been envisioned to empower and enhance the protection of women and girls from SGBV.
