Access to justice for women and girls: UNDP and UN Women launch the Gender Justice Platform
On International Women’s Day, UNDP and UN Women launched the Gender Justice Platform to leverage their partnership on gender justice. Since 2020, UN Women and UNDP have joined together to enable access to justice for 42,000 individuals. In 14 conflict-affected contexts across Africa and the Middle East, UNDP and UN Women facilitated access to justice services and led advocacy initiatives to support women’s leadership.
The launch of the Gender Justice Platform marks the extension of the scope of the partnership.
“Through the Platform, UN Women and UNDP are officially and publicly joining our efforts, and upscaling our work to ensure that rule of law systems work for women and girls, by harnessing our expertise and global reach to advance gender equality, human rights and the rule of law”, said Åsa Regnér, Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations and Deputy Executive Director of UN Women.
