NEW YORK, USA, 4 March 2010 A UNICEF-organized event in New York marked the 15th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action. Adopted at the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995, the Beijing Platform is the world's most comprehensive framework for achieving gender equality.

Donnady Coquila Lao, a youth advocate from the Philippines, noted that gains in gender equality had fallen short of the expectations that were set at the adoption of the Beijing Platform. ""Its very sad to know that children are not aware of gender equality,"" she said. ""It is very disappointing.""

At the close of the discussion, Ms. Lao was asked to identify one thing that she thought would make a difference in the fight for gender equality. She suggested celebrating an international Day of the Girl.
Then, all girls will realize how important they are, she said.
