Gender inequality's 2030 'expiration date' 

U.N. Women hosted on Thursday in New York a public event to launch their year-long campaign to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the historic 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, where tens of thousands of government, NGO and private sector officials produced the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, a document lauded as visionary for its time and which today continues to pave the way for women's empowerment and gender equality.


“Progress has been made — but we need more, and faster,” Mlambo-Ngcuka said. She pointed out, there is still “unfinished business” in the 12 critical areas of concern for women that were laid out in Beijing.  For instance, although the prevalence of female genital mutilation has declined, 30 million girls are still at risk in the next decade. Likewise, 35 percent of women around the world today have experienced some type of physical or sexual violence, according to a recent report by the World Health Organization.
