Beijing+25: Commemorating a Watershed Moment for Women’s Rights
A virtual event with Hillary Clinton and Madeleine Albright to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the UN Fourth World Conference on Women.
About this Event
The UN Fourth World Conference on Women, hosted in Beijing in 1995, electrified a generation of activists, catalyzed the creation of new women’s rights organizations, and transformed global policy. A watershed moment in the history of global women’s rights, then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton captured the movement’s call to action in a historic speech, insisting that “human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights, once and for all.” Today, the Beijing Platform remains a progressive blueprint and power source of inspiration for advancing women’s rights around the world.
Please join Hillary Rodham Clinton and Madeleine Albright for a special virtual commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the UN Fourth World Conference in Beijing to reflect on the progress since 1995, the challenges that remain, and promising ways forward to continue advancing women’s rights and gender equality.
