World Plan of Action: Decade for Women.
Women's Equity Action League, Washington, DC.
The World Plan of Action adopted by the United Nations World Conference of the International Women's Year in Mexico City in July 1975 is presented in condensed form. The major purpose is to provide guidelines for national action over the ten-year period 1975-1985 as part of a sustained, long-term effort to achieve the objectives of International Women's Year. The report is addressed primarily to governments and to public and private institutions, women's and youth organizations, employers, trade unions, mass communications media, nongovernmental organizations, political parties, and other groups. The report calls for a clear commitment at all levels of government to take the action necessary to implement the plan and for governmental review of legislation affecting the status of women in the light of human rights principles and internationally accepted standards. The guidelines treat the following topics: peace, political action, education; employment, health, the family, population, housing, social problems, social services, research, the media, and international action.
