Human rights 2004/2005 - Annual Report on Norway's Efforts to Promote Human Rights
For many years Norway has provided support to the United Nations, the World Bank and the regional development banks in order to strengthen funds, programmes, activities and expertise that promote gender equality. The UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) are some examples of funds and organisations whose efforts targeting women and gender equality receive special support from Norway. From the chapter on gender equality; "Women’s assumption of positions of power and their entry into the public arena is a significant factor in the development of democracy and human rights. Women in Norway have attained a relatively strong position in political leadership, but less progress has been made as regards women’s influence and representation in business, the industry and the media."

Implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Norway's fifth periodic report to the UN Human Rights Committee
The report summarizes: "Norwegian women are well integrated into working and political life, the welfare system ensures that poverty is a relatively marginal phenomenon and single parents, mostly women, are ensured necessary public support. This does not mean, however, that there are no gender gaps and challenges to gender equality. The most important ones are related to the economic sphere, gender-based violence and the interface between gender and other forms of discrimination such as ethnic background, disability and sexual orientation."
