(WOMENSENEWS)--Reporting in after a decade, delegates from more than 165 nations and numerous activist groups attended a meeting at the United Nation's New York headquarters from Feb. 28 through March 11 to consider the status of women around the world.

The meeting, referred to as Beijing+10, was designed to review an international document, known as the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, that calls on governments, the United Nations and other actors in society to address women's special concerns in the areas of poverty, education and training, health, violence, armed conflict, economics, power and decision-making, human rights, media and the environment.

So how did the nations and societies of the world respond? Reporters for Women's eNews asked that question in four regions of the world and during the New York meeting.
