Description
Ten years ago, in China, the international feminist movement laid out an agenda aimed at the empowerment of women worldwide: the Beijing Platform for Action.

But how much action has there really been over the last decade to advance the rights of women? Have the Millennium Development Goals obscured the aims of the Beijing Platform? Is there any chance of a positive outcome for gender relations from the chaos and devastation of the Asian tsunami?

These are some of the issues discussed in this episode of World Chronicle with Noeleen Heyzer, Executive Director of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM).
