1995 Fourth World Conference on Women
UN Offices in New York
 
Six stamps were issued to commemorate the Fourth World conference on Women. The theme of the conference was “Action for Equality, Development and Peace.” Conference participants, which included the First Lady of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton, assessed how women’s lives had changed over the past decade, and how to keep women’s issues high on the international community’s agenda. Since the “International Women’s Year” in 1975, when the first “World Conference on Women” was held, there has been an increasing awareness of the importance that women and their children have on the well-being of a nation. This awareness resulted in the United Nations Decade for Women, which lasted from 1976 to 1985.
 
Among the important issues addressed at the conference were women’s education, employment, poverty, decision-making, and human rights. The 1995 conference adopted a “Platform for Action,” establishing what problems women face and how to overcome them.
