Exhibition on Women and the United Nations in the Atrium of the Federal Foreign Office

Oct 25, 2016

On Wednesday, 26 October 2016, Minister of State Maria Böhmer will be opening the exhibition on Women and the United Nations in the Atrium of the Federal Foreign Office.

The exhibition showcases women’s rights in the United Nations over time and presents selected notable women’s rights activists who, throughout the course of history, were among many women who did outstanding work for the cause of gender equality. The exhibition also displays historic milestones such as the 1979 Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the Beijing Platform for Action, and Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. In recent decades, these achievements have made a major contribution to eliminating discrimination against women in the United Nations and its member states.

The Federal Foreign Office is presenting the exhibition together with the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth and the UN Women Nationales Komitee Deutschland e.V.

The exhibition can be viewed in the Atrium of the Federal Foreign Office from 26 October to 25 November.
