Ending sex discrimination in the law
Words & Deeds: Holding Governments Accountable in the Beijing+20 Review Process
In 1995, at the historic United Nations 4th World Conference on Women in Beijing, governments from around the world agreed on one of the most progressive plans to advance women's rights and achieve gender equality – the Beijing Platform for Action.
In it States committed to "revoke any remaining laws that discriminate on the basis of sex."
20+ years later, this goal is far from being met.
