Happy Birthday to the Committee on Elimination of Discrimination Against Women


Thuthuzela Care Centres

Thuthuzela means ‘Comfort’ in the Xhosa language. South Africa is facing an unprecedented rape crisis. According to crime statistics, one in every 3 women has been raped in South Africa. The Thuthuzela Care Centres are ‘one-stop shops’ designed to address the needs of sexual assault survivors. The centres provide emergency medical care, crisis counseling, police investigation and court preparation in an integrated and survivor-friendly manner.

#SayNØkay To Discrimination Against Women


Women play a central role in advancing sustainable development. Everyday women take decisions that impact sustainable development—be it the use of land, water, energy, or forests or through their contributions to their families and the economy. If women have equal access to resources and opportunities and are part of the decision-making processes, women can become drivers of sustainable development. In partnership with women, their communities, and grassroots organizations, UN Women supports many initiatives that promote sustainable development solutions.
