Women’s and women’s rights organizations are important partners, as well as implementers of UN Women-led initiatives. They include feminist organizations, organizations addressing the gender-based violence against women and girls, those supporting the implementation and localization of women, peace, and security agenda, promoting women’s leadership and economic empowerment.
