Transforming economies, realizing rights : progress of the world's women 2015-2016 by UN Women( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Report focuses on the economic and social dimensions of gender equality, including the right of all women to a good job, with fair pay and safe working conditions, to an adequate pension in older age, to health care and to safe water without discrimination based on factors such as socio-economic status, geographic location and race or ethnicity. In doing so, it aims to unravel some of the current challenges and contradictions facing the world today: at a time when women and girls have almost equal opportunities when it comes to education, why are only half of women of working age in the labour force globally, and why do women still earn much less than men? In an era of unprecedented global wealth, why are large numbers of women not able to exercise their right to even basic levels of health care, water and sanitation?"--Page 11

Women and natural resources : unlocking the peacebuilding potential( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thirteen years after the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, investment in women as agents of change in peacebuilding remains inadequate. One of the unexplored entry points for strengthening women's contributions to peacebuilding relates to the way in which they use, manage, make decisions on and benefit from natural resources. Indeed, women's relationship to natural resources, coupled with shifting gender norms in conflict-affected settings, provides opportunities for enhancing their political participation and enabling them to engage more productively in economic revitalization. With this report, UNEP, UN Women, UNDP and PBSO invite the international community, national governments and civil society to ensure that peacebuilding efforts fully include women, especially when it comes to managing natural resources."--Back cover

Assessment of NGO monitoring on CEDAW implementation in SE Asia for UN Women by Susan Bazilli( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this assessment was originally to review the NGO reports on CEDAW, in seven SEA countries. A questionnaire guiding the research framework and a work plan were agreed upon prior to the assessment mission. After the completion of the mission, UN Women requested that the assessment report comprise more details on monitoring, including the NGOs/CSOs advocacy, coalition building, the formation of CEDAW Watch groups, the preparation of alternative reports, and how they have contributed towards strengthened monitoring and accountability mechanisms for the implementation of CEDAW in the region.
