The opening ceremony of 'China Women's NGOs' Beijing+20 Report' kicked off in Beijing on the afternoon of June 26, 2014. 

Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) and Director of Women's Studies Institute of China (WSIC), Tan Lin pointed out that the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women (4WCW), which was held in Beijing in 1995, marked a milestone in the history of women's movements across the world. After the 4WCW, the United Nations (UN) organized special activities respectively in 2000, 2005 and 2010 to commemorate the 4WCW, and China Women's Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) also submitted their evaluation reports accordingly. This, on the one hand, shows the progress and achievement that the Chinese Government pushed forward in women's development and gender equality; on the other hand, by drawing experiences from international practices, it also has a positive influence in promoting women's development, gender equality in China and the process of gender mainstreaming. 

Tan Lin emphasized that the year of 2015 is the 20th anniversary of the 4WCW, as well as the year of the evaluation of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the year of setting up the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which is the most important year for the whole world to promote women's development and gender equality. At this historic moment, it is of great significance for China to compose the China Women's NGOs' Bejing+20 Report. 

China Women's NGOs' Beijing+20 Report will comprehensively review the progress China has made in women and poverty, women and education, women and health care, violence against women, women and economy, women's participation in power and decision-making, human rights of women and the law, women and media, women and environment, girls, the mechanism of improving women's status and gender mainstreaming, and elderly women. It will make an in-depth analysis of problems and challenges, and at the same time put forward countermeasures accordingly. 

A total of 70 experts, women workers of the ACWF and female representatives attended the conference.
