International Women's Year

This chapter describes the ceremony and demonstrations that accompanied the inaugurations of the intergovernmental conference and the NGO tribune. It describes some of the protocols and procedures of a UN conference and the more informal atmosphere of the tribune. The conference would hold plenary sessions but also would convene two committees, the first charged with developing the World Plan of Action and the second charged with considering the integration of women into development and the impediments to women’s equality. The elaborate rituals and carefully crafted addresses fueled participants’ expectations that serious work might be accomplished at these gatherings that would effect a substantial improvement in women’s status around the world.
