Vladimir Norov: «Equality and the full involvement of women in addressing political and socio-economic issues is a prerequisite for economic development, democracy and a stable society in the SCO member states»

The People’s Daily and the TASS News Agency websites posted articles by SCO Secretary-General Vladimir Norov on the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and the Platform for Action.

In his articles, the SCO Secretary-General noted the importance of the UN in achieving gender equality and eliminating discrimination against women. So, exactly 25 years ago in September 1995, Beijing hosted the Fourth World Conference on Women, during which the participants adopted the Beijing Declaration and the Platform for Action, which defined strategic goals and policy framework to promote gender equality and to protect women’s rights.

Vladimir Norov said that the Platform for Action defined equality between women and men as an aspect of human rights and a prerequisite for ensuring social justice. It called on the governments of all countries and the international community to adopt strategic measures to improve the situation in specific problem areas, including inequality in education, healthcare, violence against women, unequal women’s rights when participating in economic and political bodies, discrimination against girls and violation of their rights.

The SCO Secretary-General also noted that over the 25 years of implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, most of the SCO countries have made significant strides in achieving gender equality. The SCO countries have ratified and are implementing the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and other international conventions on human rights and the rights of women and children; in addition, national legal frameworks have been laid for achieving gender equality. Equality and the full involvement of women in addressing political and socioeconomic issues is a prerequisite for economic development, democracy and a stable society in the SCO member states.
