GENDER EQUALITY AND THE ADVANCEMENT OF WOMEN
Recognizing the equality of women and men as a spiritual truth and requisite for peace, our Office has collaborated for over 30 years with others to support policy and dialogue that shifts entrenched modes of thought, relationships and structures hindering the realization of justice and equality.
Guided by beliefs in the inherent dignity of the human being, the fundamental equality of all people, and the vital importance of justice, our office has been actively engaged in human rights in the U.S. for over 25 years.
For over 20 years, our office has worked with like-minded organizations to develop and refine an understanding and acceptance of themes related to sustainable development.
For over 60 years, the Baha’is of the U.S./UN Office has supported the work of the United Nations through addressing topics that include the UN and civil society, faith and values in global affairs, and the advancement of women.
