Yesterday, the United Nations Foundation and partners held a luncheon featuring U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Heather Higginbottom, former President of alawi Joyce Banda, Grammy Award-winning violinist Miri Ben-Ari, and global youth advocates to celebrate International Women’s Day and the power of investingin girls and women to drive change. The luncheon highlighted the progress the world has made in the 20 years since the historic UN conference on women in Beijing and the need to step up efforts to make gender equality a reality.

Additionally, to commemorate International Women’s Day, UN Foundation leaders are writing about the world they picture for girls and women in 2030 and how to achieve it.


On Friday, February 20, more than 750 UN supporters and members of the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) visited UN Headquarters for Members’ Day, where they heard from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other experts.

UN Women is “the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women.” It works to end discrimination against girls and women and advance progress to meet their needs and protect their rights.
