PUBLIC TALK: Twenty Years after the Beijing Declaration: how are women faring?
|Twenty Years after the Beijing Declaration: how are women faring? : 2015 Grace Vaughan Memorial Lecture by Professor Carmen Lawrence
Twenty years ago Carmen Lawrence took part in the UN Conference on the Status of Women in Beijing. The event seemed like a watershed and the good will was palpable; participants were determined to develop a practical plan which committed governments to specific actions rather than collating lofty aspirations which would never be realised in practice.
In this lecture, Professor Lawrence will argue that while some progress has been made on these and other fronts, it has to be acknowledged that we are still a long way from realising the ambitions set at the 1995 Conference.
The Grace Vaughan Memorial Lecture is presented by the Australian Association of Social Workers, the Institute of Advanced Studies at The University of Western Australia and the Department of Local Government and Communities.
