UNESCO’s Social Human Sciences Sector is launching a series of six consultations to take stock of the situation related to gender-based discriminations, violence, harmful social norms and stereotypes that contribute to the marginalization, exclusion and increased vulnerabilities of women and girls around the world, especially within the current context of the COVID-19 crisis.

The Social Human Sciences Sector aims to enrich UNESCO’s strengthened efforts for gender equality and, as such, these consultations will be used to draw a roadmap and guide the interventions, directions and evidence base of UNESCO’s upcoming Flagship Programme against Gender Stereotypes that will seek to prevent violence and discrimination against women and girls by undermining their root causes.

The consultation for Asia and the Pacific region is one of six in the series.
