Women's conference in China

The United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women, held in Beijing in September, produced a final—albeit nonbinding—declaration that represents an important advance toward guaranteeing the same rights for women that have long been enjoyed by men. The focus now shifts to the imposing task of implementing the document.

During twelve days of debate much common ground was found among the participants from 189 countries. It was generally acknowledged that women's rights are essentially human rights. But some of the participants went deeper than that to identify the inalienable rights of all people as children of God.
