Kristen Timothy papers

These records include the working papers of Kristen Timothy in preparation for the 1995 United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing. They contain materials that document the evolution of the Platform for Action adopted at the conference from a short statement of major campaigns for the international community to mount, drawing on the recommendations of three previous world conferences on women organized by the UN in Mexico City in 1975, Copenhagen, Denmark in 1980 and Nairobi, Kenya in 1985, to a major statement of policy goals in twelve critical areas of concern to women and girls globally.
