We, the women of the world, clearly recognize the positive impact that the Beijing platform, the UNSC Resolution 1325 and other worldwide conferences have had on the lives of women. However, there is a great need to create the political will needed to fully implement and monitor past obligations to women and girls. This does not exclude the need to address newly emerging issues. Now is the critical time for the human rights of women and girls to be addressed, affirmed, implemented, and never forgotten by the international community.
For this reason, the vision of the 5th World Conference by 2010 becomes a need.
A 5th World Conference will bring forth actions to grassroots women around the world; it will strengthen the voice of NGOs and improve government actions for the well being of all.
The use of today\'s advanced technologies and the Internet will broaden the reach of a 5th World Conference to millions of women, girls, boys and men in and at all levels of the worlds community through schools, business, and all other institutions.
