Stakeholders and development partners attending the preparatory meeting

Mme Marie Therese Abena Ondoa says the 35th edition will be an opportunity for government to come up with a multi-sectorial assessment tool of the National Gender Policy.

The policy will also be revised in order to develop  a more effective plan of action that addresses women’s problems.

Stakeholders are equally seeking to implement a more comprehensive reflection on Women’s Rights and accelerating Gender equality.

2020, A Significant Year

The year 2020 is particularly significant with regards to the advancement of gender equality and zero discrimination.
Some  key issues to be looked into are;

# Evaluation of the Beinjing Programme and platform for Action against discrimination and abuse against women, 25 years after its implementation.

# violence against women

# feminization of poverty

# poor access to education, training, information, poor access to quality health services especially sexual and Reproductive health issues, decision making, and conflict resolution

# Disrespectful use of the woman in commercials by the media

In order to effectively discuss these issues, policy makers will meet in New York twenty-four hours after the Women’s Day celebration, from March 9-20.
