REPORT OF THE CELEBRATION OF THE 35th EDITION OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY - 08 MARCH 2020
The United Nations Cameroon joined the International Community to celebrate the 35th edition of International Women's Day on March 8, 2020. This edition coincides with UN Women's new Generation Equality campaign, which marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and its Platform for Action. Adopted in 1995 at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China, the Beijing Platform for Action is considered the most progressive roadmap for the empowerment of women and girls worldwide.
Through the Gender Thematic Group coordinated by UN Women Cameroon, the United Nations marked this celebration with activities to intensify awareness of gender equality in all areas of public, social and cultural life, as well as to supporting the Government in its evaluation of the Multisectoral Plan of the National Gender Policy. The aim was to better involve all actors in the new targeting of policy directions for the next 10 years.
