Civil society reflections on Beijing+25 in the UNECE Region: Opening Statement, Art Exhibition, and Livestreams

13. November 2019 - 19:41
Civil society reflections on Beijing+25 in the UNECE Region: Opening Statement, Art Exhibition, and Livestreams Opening statement: civil society reflections on Beijing+25 in the UNECE Region

Opening session: intervention
Beijing+25 – UNECE Regional Review Meeting
29 October 2019

“My name is İlayda Eskitaşçıoğlu and I am a 26 year old lawyer and a PhD student at Koç University in İstanbul researching International Human Rights Law. I am also a member of the Beijing+25 Global Youth Task Force, and today I am speaking on behalf of the Women’s Major Group.

This opening speech has been prepared collectively with other young feminists like myself, and informed by more than 410 civil society members from 45 countries in the region.

I am grateful that they have given me, a young feminist, the floor to deliver this message. I was a 2 year-old baby when the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action was adopted, yet it continues to be the most progressive blueprint for achieving gender equality and advancing the rights of all women to date. However, almost 25 years have passed and we are still miles away from fully realizing the commitments made in 1995.

In fact, we face critical challenges today that threaten to roll-back the many achievements we have gained and continue to live in a world in which patriarchy, sexism, capitalism, ageism, racism, heteronormativity, and xenophobia drive women’s oppression and inequality. We face a climate crisis that, if not dealt with right now, will leave us all with no future to speak of.

Having said this I would like to share with you some of the key messages that we retained from the Civil Society Forum that took place yesterday. (28 October 2019)”

Media advisory: Feminists want system change! (civil society forum, 28 Oct, Geneva)

28. Oktober 2019 - 15:03

Feminists want system change!

 

Women and non-binary persons speak out at regional civil society forum on Generation Equality, Geneva. “It’s a unique event, there will be 450 feminists from 48 different countries in the UN Economic Commission for Europe (UN ECE) region coming together, sharing our anger, hope and call for action.” says Olga Djanaeva, Kyrgyzstan.

 

In 2020 it will be 25 years since the historic fourth world conference for women, held in Beijing. Decision-makers and civil society around the world are therefore gathering regionally to take stock, to see how far we have come in terms of achieving gender equality and realising women’s human rights.

 

On this day, 28 October, feminists and activits will share their anger at the structural barriers across the region that still persist and prevent women, girls and non-binary persons from fully enjoying their rights. They will map successes, such as progressive legal frameworks, to share hope and make sure they are implemented on the ground. More importantly, they want to inspire to action, by outlining common recommendations to decision-makers at the Official UNECE Regional Review meeting 29-30 October 2019.

 

WHEN:  28 October 2019

WHERE: International Congress Center Geneva (CICG)

Rue de Varembé 17, Geneva, 1211 Switzerland

 

“Our core framing principles of the forum are gender equality and justice, women’s human rights, respect for planetary boundaries and social, economic and environmental sustainability.” says Valentina Bodrug, Moldova

 

Feminists and human rights activitis from diverse backgrounds will work together to overcome structural economic, social and environmental crises that disproportionately impact women, girls and non-binary persons. Together, we are calling on everyone concerned about gender equality to fight to tackle intersecting inequalities and multiple forms of discrimination based on gender, age, class, caste, race, ethnicity, migratory status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression and sex characteristics, disabilities, motherhood and any other status.

 

“We strive to create diverse, vibrant, equal and just societies for everyone” says  Almudena Rodríguez from Spain, “Activists from across the region are coming together to hold governments to account on their commitments for gender equity and women’s human rights as set out Beijing Platform for Action, Agenda 2030 and in CEDAW.”

 

In a time of uncertainty and division, the civil society organisers are volunteers who are striving to reflect all the diverse intersecting voices and concerns from the  region and not focus on single issues.

 

“We speak with a collective voice, we will build on our inclusive approach, as used in other United Nations processes, to ensure that this is a space for our diverse civil society, in particular for marginalized groups.” says Hanna Gunnarsson, one of the organisers from Women’s Major Group. “Even if you are not able to attend the Forum in person, you can support drafting our common positions or join discussions online on #FeministsWantSystemChange

 

Zere, a famous singer from Kyrgyzstan, will perform her song “Kyz” (The girl) during the opening. She has received death threats after sharing the video of the song, where she sings passionately for women’s rights.

 

“I was born in 1995, exactly 7 days after the end of the 4th world conference on women and the adoption of the Beijing Platform for Action. As a young woman of 25 years old, I strongly believe that it is the UN’s mission is to bring back the momentum for the empowerment of all women and girls everywhere.“ Clémence Mathiaud, France

 

“There is an urgent need to re-institutionalize gender accountability since the existing bodies are not responsive to women’s human rights. It is high time that we had a Global Independent Women’s Body: A body where all women can appeal to and present their complaints without any barriers, get workable solutions, and devise policies on enhancing women’s human rights, gender equality, and feminist values.” Selma Acuner & Sehnaz Kiymaz Bahceci, Turkey.

 

“My mother went to Beijing full of hope for change for the better. She chartered a flight to enable hundreds of women to go. Many there were disappointed that the language wasn’t stronger, but today we are still fighting to keep even those commitments. And we are still a long way from the world outlined in the Platform for Action. What is truly inspirational about this event is the unity of vision and a powerful concern to make a difference. We are going to make a difference.” Zarin Hainsworth, UK

“Business Insolite” pour l’examen de Beijing+25  par l’Afrique

L’année prochaine, en 2020, alors que le monde marque les 25 ans de l’adoption de la BDPfA, il existe suffisamment de preuves pour montrer qu’il reste encore beaucoup à faire. Autant qu’il y a des avancées qui nous rendent optimistes, les processus d’examen en cours de Beijing +25 aux niveaux national, régional et mondial nous offrent donc l’occasion, en tant que féministes, défenseurs des droits des femmes et activistes, non seulement de dresser un bilan mais également de faire une pause, de réfléchir en profondeur et de demander avec audace que les gouvernements, en tant que premiers responsables, fassent face aux obstacles persistants, aux défis et aux réactions négatives sur les acquis existants qui entravent la mise en œuvre accélérée des engagements en matière de droits des femmes.

Rekindling the Beijing fire of Revolution…African Women’s Herstory

 

African women have been at the forefront of influencing and contributing to the global agenda for women’s rights. The 3rd World Conference on Women in Nairobi in 1985 resulted in the adoption of “Nairobi Forward Looking Strategies for the Advancement of Women”, which offered a practical and effective guide for global action for promoting greater equality and opportunity for women. The 4th World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995 chaired by prominent African women, including Mrs. Gertrude Mongella, who alongside other African women, ensured that the globally adopted Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action’s (BDPfA) framework and its 12 Critical Areas of Concern reflected a number of priorities for African women and girls. Indeed, the BDPfA has been described as a progressive policy framework and blueprint for advancing gender equality and women’s rights – notwithstanding, emerging priorities and issues beyond the 12 critical areas of concern.

“Business Unusual” for the Africa Beijing +25 Review

Next year, in 2020, as the world marks 25 years since the adoption of the BDPfA, there’s enough evidence that shows a lot still remains to be done. As much as there are gains that make us hopeful. The ongoing Beijing+25 review processes at national, regional and global levels therefore provides an opportunity for us as feminists, women’s rights advocates and activists to not only take stock but also pause, deeply reflect and boldly demand that governments as the primary duty bearers must confront the persistent obstacles, challenges and backlash on existing gains hindering accelerated implementation of women’s rights commitments.Beijing +25 review must be “business unusual” for women and girls to truly enjoy all their rights and live in dignity!

Beijing +25 Roadmap: How to Engage?

  • Africa Beijing+25 Review: The United Nation Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), African Union Commission (AUC) and UN Women are convening the 25th review of the implementation of the BDPfA on the African continent. Already, 46 out of 54 African states have undertaken comprehensive national-level reviews of the Beijing +25 progress made and challenges encountered and their reports submitted to UNECA, who is facilitating and synthesising Africa’s regional report on Beijing +25 to be discussed and tabled for adoption during the Beijing +25 regional review conference.
SAVE THE DATES for the Africa Regional Review and Intergovernmental meetings: 27th October to 1st November 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. 
  • Africa CSOs Consultations & Beijing +25 CSOs Parallel Report: As with the previous reviews (Beijing +5, +10, +15 & +20), FEMNET will continue to inform and mobilize women’s rights organizations to strategically contribute and influence the national, regional and global reviews. This is critical in our collective mandate of holding our governments accountable to delivering commitments under the BDPfA as well as reflecting and documenting the progress in the lives of women and girls.

FEMNET has been consolidating views and perspectives from civil society and women’s rights organisations that have had consultative meetings on the Beijing +25 reviews where discussions were about connecting the Beijing vision with the current women’s realities and priorities.FEMNET Members in Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Benin, Senegal and Tanzania have mobilized their constituencies and have compiled or are in the process of compiling national CSOs parallel reports using the NGO Guidance for National Parallel Reports. The national reports will be consolidated into the draft Africa Beijing +25 CSOs Parallel Report. The Africa Reference Group, convened by FEMNET will be reviewing the draft Africa Beijing +25 CSOs Parallel Report to be validated during the Beijing+25 CSOs Consultation meeting.

SAVE THE DATES for the Africa CSOs Consultation on Beijing+25: 27th – 28th October 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
  • Webinar on Africa Women and the Beijing+25 Reviews: FEMNET and WILDAF-WA are inviting you to register and join these Webinars, which will be an opportunity to:- (i) share highlights on Beijing +25 CSOs national Consultations in Ghana, Nairobi, Cameroon, Senegal; (ii) strategically plan for our collective advocacy and amplify women’s rights voice in the Africa CSO’s Beijing +25 Review and (iii) discuss how to plug-into the Beijing +25 road map (2019 – 2020).
