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.
To this end UN Women Regional Office for Arab States (ROAS), in 2015, initiated the programme “Men and Women for Gender equality” to understand how best to tackle these root causes and address them through a bottom-up approach. This programme, unique to the region, focused on engaging men and boys to achieve gender equality in partnership with women and girls, while also promoting the rights of women in the family by providing alternative interpretations of religious texts. Research and programme implementation during the last four years demonstrates that the region is still in need of: the continuation of effective development approaches to address the root causes of gender equality, the creation of new, innovative ones, and continued support of social movements that tackle inequalities and unfavourable social and gender norms.
As such, in partnership with the Swedish International Development Cooperation (SIDA), ROAS has launched the second phase of this regional programme. This three-years regional programme aims to create favourable realities where men and women in the Arab societies will be able to exercise their rights and opportunities equally through communities’ engagement, advocacy efforts, and legislative reform processes. Building on the outcomes of the first phase of the regional programme, UN Women will replicate and scale up the most innovative and effective community-based practices on engaging men and boys in gender equality based on evidence. Furthermore, a regional fatherhood campaign will raise awareness on the critical roles of fathers in child care, violence prevention and gender equality. Research, programme materials and tools produced by the programme will be introduced to and used by key institutions key institutions – including faith-based organizations, media, academia and Governments - to promote gender equality. The countries of programme implementation- Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine- will be expanded with two new additions, Jordan and Tunisia, where the International Men and Gender Equality Survey will be implemented.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
