NEW! United Nations Guided Tour: Focus on Women

United Nations Special Guided Tour*: "Focus on Women" is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:30 p.m. and upon demand

The Special Tour introduces significant women in UN history and today (e.g. Eleanor Roosevelt, Amina Mohammed, Michelle Bachelet) and will cover topics such as Resolution 1325, the unique contribution and growing numbers of female peacekeepers, women’s contribution in the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, SDG 5 on gender equality and how it connects to other goals, the Beijing Platform of Action, Generation Equality, and various General Assembly resolutions that highlight international action on women’s issues.

In addition to the regular stops along the guided tour route, there will be an additional one at the gift of Panama in the General Assembly Lobby, a traditional Mola style tapestry that was made by indigenous women.



Special Tours are available Monday through Friday except during Holidays.
