Beijing +25 High-level meeting on Gender Equality

By United Nations

The UN General Assembly will convene a high-level meeting to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women (FWCW), which took place in Beijing, China in September 1995. UNGA resolution 73/249 calls for a one-day meeting on the margins of the general debate of the 75th UNGA session to review the “Beijing Platform for Action”. The Platform identifies 12 “critical areas of concern”: poverty, education and training, health, violence, armed conflict, economy, power and decision-making, institutional mechanisms, human rights, media, environment, and the girl child.
