DC Comics superhero Wonder Woman is set to be named an Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls at the formal announcement on Friday.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is due to designate the comic superhero an ambassador for women's empowerment.
The cartoon character Wonder Woman will be the face of a year-long social media campaign dubbed "All the Wonders We Can Do."
The initiative will focus on gender equality and women's empowerment, which are among the UN's global goals for the next 15 years.
UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told AFP: "In order to reach young people, in order to reach audiences outside this building, we need to be creative."
