About Us

UN Women UK Society is a charity society open to people of all genders, backgrounds, abilities, etc.  We are affiliated with UN Women UK, working towards gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. As a society, we hope to raise awareness about gender inequality in the UK and around the world, work for women’s empowerment and engage more students in taking action toward gender equality. The issues we will tackle, campaign, and fundraise for, will range from violence against women to period poverty, FGM, and the importance of gender equality for development. We host a range of different events, from charity fundraisers and speaker events to more relaxed socials like movie nights, coffee mornings, and collaborations with other societies.

UN Women is a global charity for advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. Founded in 2010, it is the newest UN agency, and we work to create change for women and girls across the world by working at every level (governments, communities, and individuals) to end violence and provide equal opportunities for women and girls. UN Women UK is the UK arm of UN Women, which aims to remove the social and cultural barriers that prevent women and girls from achieving their potential.
