United Nations Observance of International Women’s Day 2020 - I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights
6 Mar 2020 -  In 2020, the global community will mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (Beijing Platform for Action) of 1995 (Beijing+25), recognized as the most ambitious roadmap for the empowerment of women and girls, everywhere.
The Observance aims to bring together the next generations of women and girl leaders and gender equality activists with the women’s rights advocates and visionaries who were instrumental in creating the Beijing Platform for Action more than two decades ago. The event will celebrate change makers of all ages and genders and discuss how they can collectively tackle the unfinished business of empowering all women and girls in the years to come.
The Observance will include addresses by senior representatives of the United Nations system, an inter-generational dialogue with gender equality activists, and musical performances.
