The Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in September 1995 called the World's attention to twelve critical areas of concern which need to be seriously addressed for accelerating the advancement of women. These areas of concern are of significant importance to Africa as they are similarly identified in the African Platform for Action: African Common Position for the Advancement of Women adopted by African member States in Dakar, Senegal in 1994, during the Fifth African Regional Conference on Women, and endorsed by the OAU Assembly of Heads of State and Government in June 1995.
