Beijing Betrayed: Women Worldwide Report that Governments Have Failed (Executive Summary)

This is a summary of the Beijing Betrayed report, the fifth in a series by the Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO) assessing governments’ progress in implementing the commitments they made to the world’s women at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women that met in Beijing in 1995. The main report consists of reports from women in 150 countries representing every region of the world. The core of the critique: Governments worldwide have adopted a piecemeal and incremental approach to implementation that cannot achieve the economic, social and political transformation underlying the promises and vision of Beijing.
