Your UN Women UK Community
A free digital home, where passionate ideas become intentional actions
With a 300-year wait for gender equality, there’s so much to do it can feel overwhelming.
You’re not the only one who feels lost in the sea of action, petition, decision that comes with anxiety over the state of gender equality.
Every day, we see another story that shows how equality for women is reducing. Whether it’s here in the UK or across the globe, it often feels like work in women’s rights is overlooked.
Now is not the time for complacency. Change needs to happen. But how?
Together for gender equality
What if there was a place where feminists felt at home?
Where you could connect and collaborate with people who share your values?
Where you could create meaningful change that makes a real difference to our world?
A community’s a powerful place. It’s even more powerful when it’s built around a common purpose.
Somewhere you can connect with like-minded people. Use your voice on an urgent issue. Discover fresh ways to create meaningful progress.
When you want to take action.
When you want to make it count.
When you want to see a change.
A community can connect you with the right people to do that.
Step inside The Community from UN Women UK
We’re in this together. The Community is where change begins.
Inside, you’ll find support for your concerns. Actions for your ideas. Co-created solutions for each problem.
It’s a space where you’ll feel supported, listened to, heard and understood. Whilst following the unique co-creation approach that runs through all our UN Women UK programmes.
As a Community member, you’ll contribute to change and solutions just as much as our team members do. We’re designing the future of gender equality together. And you’re invited.
Build new connections in a space that can, all too often, feel isolating and lonely.
|Stand in solidarity with your fellow members
|Find support for your fears and concerns

|Co-create your own projects and solutions
|Raise awareness through informed knowledge-sharing
365 days of impact. From one online home.
The Community was designed to create a ripple effect of change. It started with our first digital delegation to CSW (the Commission on the Status of Women) in 2022.
The reaction was phenomenal, with thousands of you joining us to engage in sessions online from the comfort of your homes across the UK. But we didn’t want the impact to end when CSW was over.
Enter: The Community.
This is a (free) space for change, open 365 days a year. Where you can connect and network with one another but also with us. In short, the platform creates a ripple effect of change.
Free to join. Any time, any day
From wherever you are in the UK.
Here’s what you’ll find inside your new digital home:
📱 A dedicated app, where you can network, create connections and discuss the future of women’s rights with people who are just as passionate as you are
👋 Monthly community calls, with behind-the-scenes updates from UN Women UK team members and opportunities to get even more involved
📚 A community book club, where we read and discuss a hand-picked book each month
