Women

During 2001, United Nations efforts to advance the status of women and ensure their rights continued to be guided by the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, adopted at the Fourth (1995) World Conference on Women. That guidance was augmented by the political declaration and further action and initiatives adopted in 2000 at the General Assembly’s twenty-third special session to appraise and assess implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (Beijing+5).
