12.13 5th World Conference on Women in 2015?


On the 8th of March 2012, the United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, and the President of the General Assembly, Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, officially made a joint proposal for a Fifth World Conference on Women. A 5th World Conference for Women will not be taking place in 2015. As the geo-political environment for women globally is much more reserved than in 1995 when the BPFA was agreed. It has therefore been agreed that in 2015 there will be a celebration of the 20 years of the BPFA as well as a measure of the progress over the last 20 years.
