The UN has pioneered
The UN has the
Universal periodic review (UPR)
, a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States to help measure and reveal any countries failing to meet human rights standards.
treaties/declarations in total have been achieved by the UN.
The UN is good for Women's Rights, Equality, and representation.
Migrants have their basic human rights preserved through the UN's

The UN has
secured rights for LGBT individuals
even if they are limited in some areas. Via vote, it has a majority of states supporting at least basic rights for LGBT individuals.
The UN serves as a place where oppressed groups can voice their grievances to the world.

left the UN's human rights council
, calling it 'a cesspool of political bias'.
The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) membership is full of inappropriate members.
Pioneering in itself is void of accolades if the rights of many groups and humans are still in violation without resolve.
