VOA News Examines U.N. Women In Series Of Articles

VOA News has published a five-part series examining U.N. Women. The agency’s “success depends on availability of resources and financial support. Member states have agreed to provide the new entity with an initial minimum budget of at least $500 million a year,” the news service writes (Wuhib, 6/8).  Though that amount is large, “some supporters are concerned that its starting budget of $500 million is not enough to promote women and gender equality around the world, especially at the country level,” another article in the series reports (Eagle, 6/6).
