San Francisco Bay Area Chapter

Who We Are

The UN Women USA San Francisco Bay Area Chapter raises awareness about women’s rights and issues facing our world and local community. We educate and engage local communities about global women issues; we advocate to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment; and we fundraise to provide key financial support for UN Women programs and initiatives that promote the social, political, and economic equality of women and girls across the world.


UN Women USA is one of 12 national committees. It is an independent non-profit, 501c3 organization that supports UN Women programs. These projects promote social, political, and economic equality for women and girls spanning 100 countries around the globe.

2021 Events – All Events to be Virtual More Details Coming Soon

The COVID-19 response is UN Women’s #1 priority in this time of dire need. We are responding to this crisis by reaching out and sharing information for our communities. UN Women has long been the global advocate for women during times of crisis, and today the work of UN Women is needed more than ever. We will share information on the work of UN Women on the ground during COVID-19. UN Women is a voice for women health care workers, for care providers, for refugees, and for the displaced. UN Women will address the disproportionate economic impact on women’s livelihoods, to battle the upswing in domestic violence under quarantine, and the reduced access to justice, health services, and education.
