Target: Vuk Jeremic, President of the United Nations General Assembly
Goal: Organize the fifth World Conference on Women
The United Nations World Conference on Women is an international event that celebrates female equality and inspires them to become empowered leaders on the world political and environmental scene. The last time such a conference was held was 18 years ago in Beijing in 1995. In fact, so far there have been efforts made by the U.S. and several other countries to slow down the process of organizing another such event. If United Nations organizes another Conference on Women, it would be the fifth World Conference on Women that carries forward the female legacy of empowering women all around the world to fight for equality. United Nations should make this conference an annual event to advance female leader connections worldwide.
The last conference resulted in reconciling the tension felt by Aboriginal women activists between feminism and Aboriginal movements dominated by men. Among other achievements of these international events are declarations of such goals as development, education and health, human rights violations and violence against women. Women from the United Nations discuss preserving of intellectual and cultural heritage and encourage political participation to advance their societies. The current goal of organizing a 5th World Conference on Women is to encourage participation of civil society and government entities concerned with women’s rights.
Women all over the world are still facing widespread discrimination and belittlement in many different professional fields. They’re thought of as not as good as men in local, national and world politics, making environmental policies and simply viewed as not being in a position of power. Sign this petition to demand that the United Nations organize a fifth World Conference on Women and show its support for the women empowerment movement that fights for females’ everyday right to have the same opportunities as their male counterparts. It is important that women everywhere are at least given a chance at leadership.
Dear Vuk Jeremic,
The World Conference on Women was last organized in 1995 in Beijing. That was 18 years ago and since then a lot has changed on a political and environmental level for women worldwide. The United Nations should recognize the ever-changing scene of human rights internationally and how it also affects women leaders.
Therefore, I ask the United Nations to organize the fifth World Conference on Women to bring together world female leaders that will inspire other women to become leaders in the communities that fight for female equality. It’s been too long since international attention has been brought to a woman’s role in society and it’s time to acknowledge women as strong, empowered and equal with men.
