SAN FRANCISCO, CA. - June 17, 2021 - January 14th was recently named an Official Selection of the Global Voices Film Festival UN Women USA to be held virtually on September 13-18, 2021. The international festival will showcase untold stories, emerging voices, and unique experiences of women around the world.

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. 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.
