Abstract

RESUMEN
Este artículo es una reflexión acerca de la eficacia de los Objetivos del Milenio en relación a los Derechos
de las Mujeres, considerando de manera particular la situación de las mujeres asiáticas. Si
bien la autora parte del análisis crítico del Objetivo 3 – promover la igualdad entre los géneros y la
autonomía de la mujer-, el artículo propone nuevas vías para la transversalización de género en el
resto de los Objetivos, analizando las carencias en su aplicación y presentando algunas de las propuestas
que se hacen desde el Movimiento Internacional de Mujeres. Así mismo, se plantean aquí
nuevos caminos en la búsqueda de la promoción de la equidad de género iniciados en la Conferencia
de Beijing hace ya más de una década.
ABSTRACT
This article examines the potential positive impacts of the Millenium Development Goals in relation
to Women’s Rights, focussing particularly on the situation of Asian Women. The author starts
from a critical analysis of the third objective –promoting gender equality and women’s autonomyand
further proposes new ways of mainstreaming gender in the rest of the Objectives. By doing so
the author takes into consideration some of the proposals of the Interational Women’s Movement.
The article calls for the necessity of being creative in promoting gender equity by following the
paths opened in the Conference of Beijing more than a decade ago.
