The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) published a list of 312 national mechanisms for gender equality in 2011. This total has increased since 2005 when the figure was 211 national mechanisms, and since 2010 when the total was 291 mechanisms. While these figures provide no information regarding the relative power of each of these national mechanisms, it is clear that the total number of national machineries for gender equality have increased substantially since the early 1990s.
