At the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995, the assembled States committed themselves to The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, which foregrounded women’s economic, social and cultural rights (ESCR) and an intersectional analysis, vital to advancing the substantive equality of all women.

The ESCR-Net Women and ESCR Working Group, in partnership with the Permanent Mission of Finland to the United Nations, will bring together women’s rights advocates from different regions of the world to critically assess the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action during the last two decades, drawing vital lessons for advancing women’s ESCR in the coming decade.

When? Wednesday 18 March 2015 at 1.15-2.30pm

Where? Conference Room 12. UN Building. New York.
