The United Nations Commission on the Status Of Women opened its 54th Session today to conduct a fifteen-year review of the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the outcomes of the twenty-third special session of the General Assembly. Member states and NGO delegates will examine a range of issues, apart that is from China’s notorious population policies, the medical atrocities it forces upon women, and its violation of a number of international agreements including CEDAW, ICPD and the Beijing Declaration itself!
In its formal preparatory response to the CSW China has completely avoided any mention of its population control program, presumably to avoid any uncomfortable scrutiny or questions about why violations continue and its failure to honour its commitment to the Beijing Declaration. We must hope that the Commission on the Status of Women have the ethical conviction and political integrity to demand answers. Banana anyone?
