EU 4 Gender Equality: Together Against Gender Stereotypes and Gender-Based Violence

Authors/editor(s): UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia, UNFPA Eastern Europe and Central Asia Regional Office

The three-year “EU 4 Gender Equality: Together Against Gender Stereotypes and Gender-Based Violence” programme seeks to strengthen equal rights and opportunities for women and men by shifting social perceptions around gender roles, tackling gender stereotypes and increasing men’s participation in childcare and other domestic responsibilities.

The programme is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented jointly by UN Women and UNFPA in six Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. Overall, the programme provides a unique opportunity to change the social discourse, perceptions and harmful practices on gender equality in the region, and to empower women and girls to fully access their rights and develop their potential.
