UN WOMEN A NEW ENTITY FOR GOOD

Michelle Bachelet, former President of Chile, is the first head of the newly created entity ‘UN Women’. Overseeing four previously separate UN working groups on women and with a budget twice that of these former groups combined, Ms. Bachelet is charged with the task of bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact on women’s issues. In appointing her to the position, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, “UN Women will significantly boost UN efforts to promote gender equality, expand opportunity, and tackle discrimination around the globe.”
