From February 28 to March 11, 2005, the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) conducted the ten-year review and appraisal of the Beijing Platform for Action (Beijing + 10) and commemorated the thirtieth anniversary of the First UN World Conference on Women held in Mexico in 1975.

The Objective of the review was to identify achievements, gaps and challenges in implementing the Beijing Platform for Action -signed by 189 governments- and the outcome documents, as well as the Beijing +5 Political Declaration adopted at the five-year review in June 2000.

The 49th session of the Commission on the status of Women was a regular session but as agreed in the 48th session of the CSW, on March 2004, it was a high level event.
