The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action Turns 20

The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action Turns 20

 

Foreword by the Executive Director

 

"This report is a wake-up call.

 

With its up-to-date evidence and analysis of the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, it is a salutary account of a world that has not, in the main, improved much for women and girls, and for some has got a lot worse. It is also an account of a world where new actors are starting to recognize their shared responsibility for achieving change".

 

[...]

 

In recent years, progress on gender equality has been held back by forces in the global political and economic landscapes that have been particularly hard to mitigate or combat. Persistent conflicts, the global financial and economic crises, volatile food and energy prices, and climate change have intensified inequalities and vulnerability, and have had specific and almost universally negative impacts on

women and girls. Fragile gains towards gender equality continue to be threatened by rising extremism and specifically directed backlash against women's rights

in many contexts. Deep-seated discriminatory norms, stereotypes and violence remain pervasive, evidencing gender-based discrimination that continues to be deeply entrenched in the minds of individuals, institutions and societies.

 

Creating a world with greater equality for générations  to come is the defining and most urgent challenge of this century. Gender equality and the realization of women's and girls' human rights are fundamental  for achieving human rights, peace and security, and sustainable development and must be central to the post-2015 development agenda.

 

We have set 2030 as the expiry date for gender inequality. Achieving this will require unprecedented political leadership, dedicated and vastly increased resources, and new partnerships across the whole of society. This review gives us clear direction on where our efforts must and will focus in order to deal, once and for all, with this greatest human rights violation. I urge all our partners to give close attention to this review's recommendations as we turn now to develop  and then implement the new post-2015 development agenda, at whose heart lies the renewed vision of a just, sustainable and prosperous world in balance."

 

Dr. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka
