Adopted by 189 countries during the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995, the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA) is the most comprehensive and progressive blueprint for advancing women’s rights. The BPfA envisions a world in which gender equality and women’s empowerment are at the center of sustainable development. It advocates for a world where women and girls are free from violence, have access to health care and education, and are able to exercise their human rights.
