"Beijing +25: Has the Mask of Gender Equality Fallen?"
H I Z B U T T A H R I R
The year 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA), an extensive document that was the outcome of the UN’s fourth World Conference on Women in September 1995, held in Beijing, China. Its aim was to advance the rights and improve the lives of women globally through the establishment of ‘Gender Equality’ in all spheres of life: political, economic and social, and to incorporate gender perspectives into all policies, laws and programmes within states, at all levels of society. The document was hailed as the most visionary agenda for the empowerment of women and girls internationally. The declaration was adopted by 189 countries, including the majority of governments in the Muslim world, who agreed to implement its commitments within their states and promote its agenda amongst their nations.
This March of 2020, the Women’s Section in the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir launched a global campaign entitled, “Beijing+25: Has the Mask of Gender Equality Fallen?” The campaign sought to challenge the dominant narratives of ‘Gender Equality’ and its claims of advancing women’s rights and the progress of nations, and present Islam’s unique comprehensive blueprint of detailed principles, laws and systems as implemented by its political system, the Khilafah (Caliphate) based upon the method of the Prophethood, that would provide an alternative credible vision to raise the status of women, secure their rights, elevate their standard of living and achieve true progress within a state.
The Campaign concluded with a global Women’s Conference on 4th of April 2020 and the release of a booklet by the same name as the campaign.
