EU 4 Gender Equality: Together against gender stereotypes and gender-based violence - Key results of the third implementation year
The three-year regional programme ’EU 4 Gender Equality: Together against gender stereotypes and gender-based violence’, funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented jointly by UN Women and UNFPA, strengthens women’s and men’s equal rights and opportunities by shifting social perceptions, challenging gender stereotypes and increasing men’s participation in unpaid domestic and care work. The programme is active in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
During its third implementation year (March 2022 – February 2023), the programme reached almost 5 million people through multiple innovative social media campaigns aimed at challenging gender stereotypes and discriminatory social norms and empowering young women and girls. Over 11,5 million people from all six project countries increased their awareness on the importance of men’s caretaking responsibilities through various communication and advocacy initiatives. The programme also awarded 13 small grants to civil society organizations, which enabled the CSOs to implement projects in all six Eastern Partnership countries.
