UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
As the United Nations continues to convene talks in Geneva under the framework of Security Council resolution 2254 (2015), it recognizes the importance of a fully inclusive process to ensure that the voices and views of Syrian women are heard, consistent with the Geneva Communiqué of 30 June 2012 and Security Council Resolutions 2122 and 1325, including in the context of the Constitutional Committee process.
