   Beijing +5 Global Forum

From September to December 1999, WomenWatch was holding the Beijing +5 Global Forum, a series of Internet Working Groups to provide input into Beijing +5.

The Platform for Action approved at the Fourth World Conference on Women (Beijing, 4-15 Sept. 1995) is an agenda for women's empowerment. It aims at accelerating the implementation of the Nairobi Forward-Looking Strategies for the Advancement of Women and at removing all the obstacles to women's active participation in all spheres of public and private lives through a full and equal share in economic, social, cultural and political decision making.

The Platform for Action establishes a set of actions that should lead to fundamental changes by the year 2000. Its implementation is primarily the responsibility of Governments, but also of institutions in the public, private and non-governmental sectors at the community, national, subregional/regional and international levels.
