Twenty years ago this September, the United Nations convened its fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China.
They produced what is called The Beijing Platform for Action and identified twelve strategic areas for the empowerment of women and girls.
SInce 1995, the Beijing Platform for Action has served as the gender equality roadmap for governments and communities around the world – but a lot can happen in twenty-years!
Our friends at the Working Group on Girls designed the girls’ survey to gather feedback on what the world looks like for girls 20 years after the Beijing Conference. Girls, ages 13-18, can take the survey in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, or Arabic. It takes about 5 minutes to complete, but will help shape the global movement for girls’ rights.
IDG Summit is a dynamic virtual platform that brings thousands of girls and girl-serving organizations together to celebrate the International Day of the Girl.
