Laws need teeth African women NGOs are the forefront of a campaign to get the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) to appoint a Special Rapporteur on Laws that Discriminate Against Women during the ten year review of the Beijing conference.

Fears that Beijing is being lost As governments insist that the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA) will be strengthened by the upcoming review of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), NGOs argue that the women’s agenda is getting buried.

Calls for free sanitary ware in schools Governments in developing countries should consider offering free sanitary ware in schools as a way of improving girls’ education. The Forum for African Women Educationists (FAWE) and education practitioners have reported lack of protective sanitary materials and separate toilet facilities as one of the biggest obstacles hindering the performance of girls in class.
