  • Introduction: Beijing+20 – Where now for Gender Equality?
    • Authors: Andrea Cornwall; Jenny Edwards
      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA) is 20 years old. This introduction revisits the promises of the Beijing conference and reflects on how these have materialised amidst broader changes in the political economy of development. Most significant is the shift in the role of the state, with the entry of new development actors into the development policy and practice arena and growing private sector engagement. One consequence of this is that in the enthusiasm of corporate campaigns promoting women and girls as self‐actualising individuals who can lift their communities out of poverty, effective implementation of progressive policies is getting lost. An important legacy of Beijing is the buzz it created within women's organising and the opportunities offered for the creation of transnational and local alliances. In conclusion we underline the hugely important part the energy of women's organisations continues to play in achieving positive and sustainable change.

  • Myths to Live By: Beijing Narratives
    • Authors: Rosalind Eyben
      Pages: 9 - 12
      Abstract: The author draws on her own experience as a feminist bureaucrat involved in the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing to make the case for multiple feminist narratives of Beijing that woven together can create a myth that points to the importance of collective organising that cuts across state–civil society boundaries.

  • Wearing Platform Shoes: How the Platform for Action Changed our Lives, and
           how Women's Lives have Changed since the Platform for Action
    • Authors: Suzette Mitchell
      Pages: 13 - 18
      Abstract: In this article the author reflects on her personal experience from being at the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, and the study and work she has done since this time on the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action through the United Nations, NGOs and her active role in the global women's movement. She looks at strategic ways the document could have been used in a policy context to lead global and national dialogue and draws from her PhD thesis titled ‘Beijing – Transformation and Feminist Politics: From the Personal to the International’. She links the process of the Beijing conference and Platform for Action back to the accountability within the UN itself, identifying opportunities lost through lack of clear commitment, planning and resourcing. She concludes by highlighting the importance of this event and document on the lives of women who were a part of the process and the value of a future NGO Forum for women for the global women's movement.

  • ‘To Beijing and Back’: Reflections on the Influence of the
           Beijing Conference on Popular Notions of Women's Empowerment in Ghana
    • Authors: Takyiwaa Manuh; Nana Akua Anyidoho
      Pages: 19 - 27
      Abstract: The 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing was a pivotal moment for legitimating women's rights work in Ghana and served as a powerful framing for women's empowerment. This article explores the Beijing conference and examines its influence on popular notions of and efforts to promote women's empowerment. We argue that the discursive context provided by the conference shaped popular narratives about women directly and also through its influence on the ideas and practices of public institutions and civil society. There is greater acceptance that women have rights that should be promoted and protected, and that there should be institutions and systems to which they have recourse. However, significant work remains to be done in tackling the resistances and tokenism that continue to dominate public discourses and actions to advance gender equality. Further efforts to advance women's empowerment and gender equality in Ghana must therefore build on the legacy of the Beijing conference.

  • Beyond the Rhetoric of Choice: Promoting Women's Economic Empowerment in
           Developed Countries
    • Authors: Claartje J. Vinkenburg
      Pages: 28 - 32
      Abstract: In preparing for the 20‐year review of the Beijing Platform for Action on women's economic empowerment, both formal policy documents and media coverage in developed countries such as the Netherlands resonate with the rhetoric of choice between work and care. In this article, my central argument is that framing the combination of work and care as a matter of personal choice stands in the way of economically empowering women. To promote sustainability in combining career and care, we need to expose, challenge and bend underlying norms about gender roles. For policymakers to take responsibility in the economic empowerment of women, both policy documents and media coverage should promote win–win instead of zero sum solutions in combining work and care, for both men and women.

  • Rural Women's Empowerment through Employment from the Beijing Platform for
           Action Onwards
    • Authors: Paola Termine; Monika Percic
      Pages: 33 - 40
      Abstract: This article provides a critical analysis of the conceptualisation of women's empowerment through employment (and later decent work) from the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the Beijing Platform for Action through to the Millennium Development Goals, the Decent Work Agenda and current proposals for the post‐2015 Development Agenda. The article focuses on the context of rural women. Through a historical overview of the increasing importance placed on employment and the ‘world of work’ for poverty reduction and women's empowerment within the development discourse, the article analyses the implications and gaps of prevailing approaches. The article also provides recommendations to enhance the potential of rural employment and decent work in promoting women's empowerment, including with specific reference to the debates around the post‐2015 Development Agenda.

  • Feminist Movements and the Gender Economic Agenda in Latin America
    • Pages: 41 - 46
      Abstract: In Latin America, the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing represents a milestone in the history of the feminist and women's movements. Twenty years have passed and despite important achievements in gender equality, for issues of economic equality the results are still meagre and there remains a long road ahead in the fields of employment, access to resources, and social protection for women. Unsurprisingly, it is in economic matters that the feminist and women's movements have renewed their themes and strategies. This article identifies a gender economic agenda that is broad in its transformative scope and in its determination to challenge core aspects of the current economic and social organisation. This broad perspective is a direct legacy of the Beijing Platform for Action but expands a step beyond as it incorporates new challenges for bringing gender justice by questioning the current ways of production and consumption.

  • Interrogating the Rights Discourse on Girls' Education: Neocolonialism,
           Neoliberalism, and the Post‐Beijing Platform for Action
    • Authors: Navtej Purewal
      Pages: 47 - 53
      Abstract: This article examines how girls' education since 1995 has emerged as a prominent symbol within the ‘rights’ discourse coming out of the Beijing Platform for Action. By highlighting the neoliberal and neocolonial processes during this time, particular shifts are traced which show how girls' education has been a symbolic part of the geopolitical canvas in Pakistan and Afghanistan alongside the ‘war on terror’ and universalisation of education. The article refers to alternative voices which have attempted to disrupt the global narrative of the post‐Beijing ‘rights’ agenda and points to the problems of this in the context of occupations, militarisation, and markets being used simultaneously as strategies for global governance and order.

  • Beijing, Gender and Environment – Challenges for Ecological
           Sustainability, Development and Justice?
    • Authors: Anke Stock
      Pages: 54 - 58
      Abstract: Twenty years ago the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action was adopted to ‘… advance the goals of equality, development and peace for all women everywhere …’ (Beijing Declaration, 1995, paragraph 3). Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Chapter K (of the Beijing Platform for Action) on ‘women and the environment’ laid down three strategic objectives, inter alia, with objective 2 being to ‘integrate gender concerns and perspectives in policies and programmes for sustainable development’. This article demonstrates the importance of the implementation of this objective – on the one hand for progress on gender equality, and on the other hand for an ecologically sustainable development.

  • Gendered Rights in the Post‐2015 Development and Disasters Agendas
    • Authors: Sarah Bradshaw
      Pages: 59 - 65
      Abstract: This article explores how, 20 years after the Beijing conference, women's rights are being discussed within processes to develop a post‐2015 sustainable development agenda and the parallel international disaster risk reduction framework. It is based on analysis of documents produced to date from the various processes, and also personal experience of seeking to influence both the post‐2015 development and disaster agendas. It highlights how attempts to marry the environmental and development agendas reveal a continued problematic conceptualisation of sexual and reproductive rights. It suggests that in gender terms, while the post‐2015 development agenda and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are over‐ambitious to the point of being mere rhetoric, gender rhetoric is yet to enter the international disaster risk reduction discourse. This, the article argues, coupled with the continued conceptualisation of disasters as outside mainstream development, has further negative implications for the recognition and fulfilment of women's rights.

  • Beyond Tinkering with the System: Rethinking Gender, Power and Politics
    • Authors: Mariz Tadros
      Pages: 66 - 74
      Abstract: This article offers some reflections on how the 1995 Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA) theme of women and decision‐making power came to be translated into a set of policy directions, and what their implementation suggests in terms of their potential to challenge power hierarchies. The article draws on work from the Pathways of Women's Empowerment programme on voice and constituency building. The article argues that the policy focus of the BPfA, after the introduction of MDG 3 in particular, became one of redressing gender disparities in representation in legislatures. Twenty years later, we are at a critical juncture at which we need to ask ourselves whether we need to go beyond numbers in parliament as a proxy for political empowerment, and probe into: what kind of politics, through which pathways, in relation to whom, to achieve what?

  • Gender Mainstreaming Critiques: Signposts or Dead Ends?
    • Authors: Kirsty Milward; Maitrayee Mukhopadhyay, Franz F. Wong
      Pages: 75 - 81
      Abstract: An enduring legacy of the Beijing conference, gender mainstreaming has been widely implemented and widely critiqued since the 1990s. But the basis of these critiques has changed over time: this article charts a typology of critique approaches. It shows how the central problem is diagnosed variously as the loss of the political dimensions of gender in the course of mainstreaming; or technical shortcomings; or the gendered nature of organisations as the causes of technical failure. For others, the problem has been the failure to scrutinise the connection between gender mainstreaming and changes in gender relations in women's real lives. More recently, another group asserts that the trajectory of gender mainstreaming is simply part of the much broader logic of neoliberal governance. Understanding the technologies of power that shape a feminist practice suitable for the governance institutions into which it is inserted can help guide future feminist engagement.

  • No Shortcuts to Shifting Deep Structures in Organisations
    • Authors: Aruna Rao; David Kelleher, Carol Miller
      Pages: 82 - 91
      Abstract: In the late 1990s an international feminist network, Gender at Work, wrote about the ‘deep structure’ of organisations through which gender discriminatory norms and power relations are reproduced. In this article, the authors reflect on the evolution since the Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995 of Gender at Work's theory and practice on approaches to shift deep structure. The Gender at Work Analytical Framework, used by dozens of organisations worldwide to assess, strategise and evaluate the process of organisational change, is described. Using a case study on the Dalit Women's Livelihood Accountability Initiative in Uttar Pradesh, India, the article demonstrates the adaptation of the Analytical Framework for working directly with community‐level programmes, highlighting its strength at bringing into focus the deeply entrenched social norms and deep structures that exclude women from claiming their rights. The article concludes with reflections on what Gender at Work has learned since Beijing about working to challenge deep structures in organisations, programmes and systems.

  • Twenty Years after Beijing: Can Promises be Turned into Progress?
    • Authors: Jessica Woodroffe
      Pages: 92 - 96
      Abstract: Twenty years since the landmark women's conference at Beijing, and as the post‐2015 agenda is concluded, it is clear that there has been a significant increase in rhetoric from governments and even some notable achievements in the field of women's equality and rights. But a failure to tackle underlying causes – particularly the persistent unequal power relations between women and men – has thwarted real, sustainable progress. A report by the Gender and Development Network has identified four areas in need of far greater political focus and resources: working with marginalised women to build their own agency; supporting women's collective action; promoting positive social norms; and reassessing macroeconomic policies and the role of the care economy.

  • The Digital Age: A Feminist Future for the Queer African Woman
    • Authors: Nyx McLean; Tiffany Kagure Mugo
      Pages: 97 - 100
      Abstract: How can digital spaces make possible a feminist future for the queer African woman? Writing as the editors of a South African queer online space, HOLAA!, this article aims to draw attention to and discuss queer digital communities and how they afford the queer African woman the space to express her lived experiences. The article further examines how digital spaces create these possibilities for public and political expression. Lastly, the authors present what they consider to be a feminist future for the queer African woman, and that it is within this future that the rights of queer women can be protected nationally and internationally as the conversations that fight erasure, exclusion and the denial of rights occur.

           Resources for Women's Rights
    • Authors: Zohra Moosa; Happy Mwende Kinyili
      Pages: 101 - 107
      Abstract: The women's funding movement has contributed to and been a product of women's rights movements around the world. This article looks at the history of Mama Cash, the first international women's fund, to chart how the effort to mobilise resources for women's rights activism has been going – before and since the Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995.

  • If Not Now, When? Reasserting Beijing for a Progressive Women's Rights
           Agenda in 2015 and Beyond
    • Authors: Abigail Hunt
      Pages: 108 - 114
      Abstract: Women's rights organisations have been central to progress on women's rights and gender equality since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA). Drawing on interviews and a survey carried out in January 2015 with 13 Womankind Worldwide's partner organisations, the myriad ways in which women's movement actors draw strategically on the BPfA as appropriate to their context are explored, along with universally‐shared implementation challenges.

  • Brazilian Feminisms in Global Spaces: Beijing and Beijing+20
    • Authors: Cecilia M.B. Sardenberg
      Pages: 115 - 122
      Abstract: Within the last decades, feminist movements in Brazil have advanced significantly beyond borders, gaining increasing recognition in global spaces, UN ones in particular, for positively influencing Brazil's official position. Unsurprisingly, Brazil has served four terms in the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and, in the eyes of more progressive delegations, is a much needed presence to ensure no lost ground on what has been achieved in previous conferences. However, the actual presence of Brazilian feminist activists in the delegations and the NGO Forums has dwindled considerably. What have been the strategies and mechanisms at play in maintaining a radical vein in our official position? Can it be sustained without the more active involvement of feminist activists – say, throughout Brazil's new role as president of the 60th CSW session? These are some of the issues I address in this article, sharing the views of activists present at those events.
