On the 24 – 26 November, 2019 over three hundred women’s rights and feminist organisations, networks and movements from across the Pacific and the Asian Regions, represented their much larger networks and associations at the national, regional and international levels, at the NGO Forums and Young Feminist Forum held in Bangkok. We collectively called for government accountability to speed up and implement commitments made over the last 25 years under the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA) to advance gender equality and the rights of women and girls.

This Asia Pacific CSO Declaration on Beijing + 25 represents the collective voices of diverse women and girls; rural women, older women, women with disabilities, single and widows, sex workers, lesbian, bisexual women, people with intersex variations, trans and non-binary persons, women from religious minority communities, Dalit women, ethnic minorities, Indigenous women, refugees, displaced and stateless women who participated in the Asia and Pacific Civil Society Forum, the Young Feminists Forum; the Beijing+25 on-line Forum and the large networks of members, affiliates, and organisations who are linked through those who attended these Forums and participated at the national, sub-regional and regional levels.
