On a cold New York evening, December 10, 2013, UN Women for Peace hosted a discussion on the global need to end violence against women at a private club on the Upper East Side.

The event featured opening remarks by Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, wife of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Patron of UN Women For Peace. Mrs. Ban Soon-taek delivered a passionate plea for the rights’ of women, “violence against women is a violation of human rights.  It may be universal, but it is not inevitable.  It can be stopped.” The panel was moderated by Fox News’ Uma Pemmaraj, which included three remarkable women Cindy Dyer (Vice President of Human Rights at Vital Voices), Aldijana Sisic (UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women) and Manda Zand Ervin (Alliance of Iranian Women).  Ms. Ervin shocked to the room when she told the 90 guests that the “Islamic Council had legalizing pedophilia that afternoon. Men can now legally marry their adopted daughters. Iran is now a gender-apartheid state.”

Guests included: Carole Acunto, Keiko Ono Aoki, Carl Adams, Paul Austin, Jean-Christophe Bas, Geoffrey Bradfield, Kendra Bridelle, Giancarlo Bruno, Sharon Bush, Eileen Butler, Jessica DeMarco, Katie Dervishi, Wendy Diamond, Daniella Diserens, Jean-Pierre Diserens, Paula Carlton Evans, Nicola Hewitt, Deirdre Imus, Lucia Kaiser, Audrey Latourette, Marcia Mintz, Sam Munshani, Valdona Neritani, Nicole Rhodes, Gaynor Shaw, Linda Silverman, Steven Tanger, Roric Tobin, Emmie Twombly, Melek Verbay, Carole Bellidora Westfall, Julie Weindling, Barbara Winston, Jacqueline Wolfson.

UN Women for Peace’s chairwoman, Muna Rihani al Nasser, announced the organization’s plans to host their second annual March in March in celebration of International Women’s Day, which will be at the United Nations Headquarters on Friday March 7, 2014.

UN Women for Peace will host over 500 attendees at a private luncheon and public march and rally to raise further awareness to end violence against women.  

Luncheon guests will join hundreds of supporters inside the United Nations Headquarters’ Gates and marching through the UN Park to Dag Hammarskjold Park.

Last year celebrities that attended the march and rally included Christy Turlington Burns, Nana Meriwether (Miss USA 2012), Monique Coleman, Alexandra Richards, Kelly Rutherford andSusan Sarandon.

UN Dignitaries attended included H.E. Mrs. Ban Soon –taek (wife of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon), Muna Rihani Al-Nasser (Chairman, UN Women for Peace and wife of Ambassador Nassir Al-Nasser), Lakshmi Puri (Deputy Executive Director, of UN Women), & H.E. Ms. Rosemary A. DeCarlo  (US Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations) and many other ambassadors and their wives.

A special message from Malala Yousafzai was read by Susan Sarandon. The video of her message was broadcasted nationally.

UN Women for Peace, founded in 2008, under the patronage of H.E. Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, wife of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon, aims at promoting and advancing the goals of UN agencies whose missions are to provide opportunities for women through social, cultural, educational and empowerment programs while partaking in a global peace building process.

UN Women for Peace is focused on supporting and funding UN humanitarian programs for women in developing countries and countries in conflict. Since its inception, UN Women for Peace has sponsored scholarships to benefit underprivileged women to study at the University for Peace.  

From 2012, UN Women for Peace is proud to support the UN Women Trust Fund to End Violence against Women. The Trust Fund, established by the UN General Assembly in 1996, assists efforts to prevent violence against women and girls, provides services to those affected by violence and strengthens the implementation of laws and policies on violence against women and girls. The Trust Fund is particularly concerned with ending violence against women in countries of conflict, post-conflict and transitional set- tings. The Trust Fund also invests, through its partners, in long-term solutions for a world free of violence. UN Women for Peace’s contributions to the Trust Fund directly fund these efforts.
