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.
