The Seventh African Regional Conference on Women (Beijing + 10) Decade Review of the Implementation of the Dakar and Beijing Platform for Action took place in Addis Ababa in October 2005. The regional review was preceded by sub-regional and country reviews. The reviews showcased the success that countries achieved in addressing the Beijing Twelve Critical Areas of Concern. They also highlighted the gaps that still exist and revealed that Africa's success in addressing gender inequality and women's empowerment is far outweighed by what has not been achieved.
