The "B Plus Ten" cyber dialogues are a series of seven real-time, online "global citizens chats" during the review of the Beijing Platform for Action taking place at the United Nations in early March. The cyber dialogues are linked to "GEM News", the daily conference newspaper being produced by Gender Links (GL) from South Africa and the African Woman and Child Feature Service (AWC) from Kenya
The cyber dialogues aim to:
Provide daily news and in-depth features on the Beijing Plus Ten Review;
Encourage women, especially in Africa and in the South, to make their voices heard on key themes;
Empower women in the use of ICTs and strengthen networking; and,
Facilitate coverage of the review in the mainstream media through providing facts, figures, expert opinion, as well as diverse views and voices.
