DescriptionObtaining recognition of domestic violence as a rights issue at the recent UN 'World Conference on Human Rights', was due largely to activism worldwide. It is hopeful that activism can also secure results in the 1995 'World Conference on Women'. Lieshout examines how activism worked for the UN Conference, with a global petition and NGO input into pre-meetings of national Government delegates. She outlines key issues that feminists, academics, gender experts and development practitioners should address before campaigning. Equal partnerships between North and South are vital, as is pressing for reform of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
