20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BEIJING DECLARATION AND PLATFORM FOR ACTION: 2015


DemocracyBanner


THIS IS OUR YEAR ... women and girls locally and globally who have been following the Beijing mission and those who want to engage in the next Beijing era - Beyond Beijing.

On March 9, 2015 over 10,000 mostly women  are expected to attend the 59th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York City.  For the next 10 days they will look back at the past 20 years of progress and barriers to the Beijing Platform for Action.  They will lobby their country Missions (country offices at the UN ),  meet and greet women from other countries, attend forums and cultural events.  The UN CSW will deliberate on an Outcome Document that will become Agreed Upon Conclusions.  Hopefully.

Since 1998 WIN has been a Non-governmental Organization with Special Consultative Status to the UN ECOSOC ( Economic and Social Council, a significant policy making body of the UN. With that status WIN can accredit official Delegates to UN meetings.  We can submit oral and written statements and Impact UN outcomes.

STAY WITH US AS WE WATCH, LISTEN TO AND CELEBRATE WOMEN AND GIRLS' PROGRESS FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS.
