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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
In the Arab States region, UN Women is about to start the implementation of an exciting and unique three-year regional programme entitled ‘Dare to Care’ with the goal of transforming patriarchal social norms and masculinities, with a focus on three priority countries: Morocco, Egypt and Jordan. This ground-breaking regional programme aims to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment using the involvement of men and boys in unpaid care and domestic work as entry point. The programme is also meant to contribute to shift discriminatory social norms and break stereotypes that impede women’s participation in paid employment. Working through the Regional Programme and as per a nationally agreed upon implementation plan developed with national stakeholders and the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2023-2027), the ’Dare to Care’ regional programme will work towards the achievement of three outcomes:
• Outcome 1: Societies across the MENA region demonstrate an increased involvement of men and boys in caregiving and household responsibilities and more empowerment of women and girls.
• Outcome 2: Key institutions effectively transform patriarchal masculinities and social norms, with a focus on advancing caregiving and household responsibilities of men and boys and the economic empowerment of women and girls.
• Outcome 3: More men and boys are able to take their share in caregiving and household responsibilities with more enabling laws and policies that promote their caregiving and household responsibilities, and paternity leave.
