Introduction

Following the International Women's Year Conference in Mexico City in 1975, at which the World Plan of Action and Declaration of Mexico on the Equality of Women and their Contribution to Development and Peace were adopted, the United Nations Decade for Women 1976-1985, with its central themes of equality, development and peace, was launched by a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly in 1975. A second World Conference of the United Nations Decade for Women was held in Copenhagen in 1980, focusing not only on the themes of the Decade but also on three subthemes: employment, health and education. This Conference adopted the Programme of Action for the Decade, which together with the earlier World Plan of Action provided the framework for further contributions towards the advancement of women.
