Beijing, China, September 4-15,
The United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women (FWCW or Beijing), held in Beijing, China, September 4–15, 1995, was the largest and most influential of all the World Conferences on Women. Nearly 180 government delegations and 2,500 nongovernmental organizations met to discuss a broad range of issues concerning women. They drew on and moved beyond language agreed upon at earlier international conferences, including the International Conference on Population and Development in 1994. The Beijing Conference was a turning point in the world's understanding of women's human rights.
