PDF File Size: 4.5 MB | Download   
The Beijing +20 Review holds a lot of significance for women as it provides an important opportunity to examine the efforts of government, non-government organizations as well as civil societies in realizing the commitments to the goals of equality, development, and peace, and further for holding leaders and governments accountable. Although there is increasing presence, participation, and involvement of women in all sectors including political, legal, economic, social, and cultural along with their changing roles and responsibilities, inequality remains. At the threshold of the Beijing+ 20 Review we look forward to a united, active and committed women’s movement nationally, regionally and globally in continuing our struggle for equality, development, and peace.
This is a historic and critical moment for us to work together for gender equality and the empowerment of women also in view of the formulation and adoption of the sustainable development goals in the year 2015. The Fourth World Conference on Women adopted the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action in 1995, which was later endorsed by United Nations General Assembly. Subsequent to this, every five years since 1995, progress in achieving strategic objectives of Platform for Action is reviewed by the Commission on the Status of Women, which is a functional commission of the Economic and Social Council of UN. There have been three reviews to date 2000, 2005 and 2010 — with each review resulting in an outcome document that reinforces global commitment to the empowerment of women and girls, and that outlines priority actions for the coming five years. In this connection, The Beijing+20 Review Process has been viewed as an opportunity for concerned stakeholders to scrutinize the efforts of government as well as non-government organizations and civil societies in realizing the commitment to the goals of equality, development and peace for women and ultimately holding leaders and governments accountable for the commitments made for women’s empowerment, equality, and the promotion of their human rights as enshrined in the BPFA. In view of this, National Network Organization, Beyond Beijing Committee (BBC) and National Network for Beijing- Review Nepal (NNBN) working in the area of women’s rights and who have actively been engaged in the implementation and review of the BPFA, realized the need for a consolidated effort in initiating the Beijing+20 review process. They jointly organized and concluded three days B+ 20 National Women’s Conference which was participated by women’s rights activists from all over the country. The objective was to review achievements, gaps, challenges and pertinent issue, 20 years subsequent to the Beijing Conference. The conference unanimously promulgated the 20 points Kathmandu Declaration in commensurate with the global slogan “Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it!
