UN for global agreement to end violence against women

Mar 21, 2013

In the follow-up to the historic global agreement reached at the 57th Commission on the Status of Women to prevent and end violence against women and girls, UN Women has called for action to translate it into reality for women and girls globally.

UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet urged speedy implementation of the Agreed Conclusions. “The best way to honour the commitments made by Member States at the Commission is to work for implementation and accountability. We must continue moving forward, with courage, conviction and action. UN Women with its strong programmatic focus, experience on ending violence against women, and field presence in 85 countries stands ready to fully support implementation of the Agreed Conclusions,” she said.

UN Women will use the Agreed Conclusions to protect the right of women and girls to live free of fear and violence, working closely with UN Member States, UN country teams and civil society. The agreement constitutes a roadmap for prevention and response, with a total of 69 clear and concrete actions that should be taken by Governments and other stakeholders.
