Beijing +5: Women 2000

In June, 2000 the United Nations General Assembly called for a special session called “Women 2000 : Gender Equality, Development and Peace for the twenty-first century”. This is often referred to as “Beijing Plus 5” as it was where governments reported on and evaluated how their countries were progressing towards achieving the objectives of the Beijing Platform for Action five years after its inception.
