Looking to the Future: Equal Partnership between Women and Men in the 21st Century.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Hubert H. Humphrey Inst. of Public Affairs.
Information about the world conferences for and about women held during the United Nations' Decade for Women, 1975-1985, demonstrates that women have been responsible for promoting change on local, national, and international levels. The booklet begins with a chronology of the events leading up to and including the decade and its conferences. Overviews of the two conferences held to date--the Mexico City (Mexico) conference of 1975 and the Copenhagen (Denmark) conference of 1980--are presented. Some documents from each conference are presented in a condensed form. The purpose and functions of the third world conference on women to be held in 1985 in Nairobi, Kenya, are discussed. Organized into non-governmental associations which interact with governments, women have promoted changes aimed at advancing the status of women, contributing to economic development, and promoting peace and international understanding.
