Although the UN has made great strides towards gender equality within the organization, there's still "far to go".

That's according to Ourania Yancopoulos, Project Manager and Lead Researcher of HERStory, an exhibition showcasing women leadership in the UN.

As of June this year, she said, only 34 out of 159 senior level positions in the UN are held by women.

Ms Yancopoulos explained to Andita Listyarini how the UN can become a real beacon of gender parity in the future.
