Declarations on Their Own Won’t Change the Course
25 years after the Beijing Conference on Women’s rights
In 1995, the 4th World Conference on Women was held in Beijing, China. This year, we are not only celebrating the 25th anniversary of the conference, but also the 75th anniversary of the UN which has a pivotal role in upholding human rights and women’s rights. Hence, the United Nations General Assembly had decided to hold a high-level meeting on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 4th World Conference on Women just after the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
