What the Beijing Platform for Action means to me
I’ve never known my world without opportunities. As a young youth activist, my possibilities have never seemed limited in Barbados, or even the Caribbean. A more critical analysis undermines this superficial belief. The Beijing Platform for Action shows all the flaws and superficial fixes that many governments have hidden behind. The BFPA is like a highlighter across the face of gender programs that are inadequate and antique, it proves that there is still much work to be done in women’s issues.
