Cairo to Beijing: Disaster Averted?
Janet Gottschalk’s article traces steps in “the long and difficult journey toward a world of equality development and peace” and describes the events leading up to and the outcome of the United Nation’s Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995. Gottschalk’s perspective echoes the theme of a world without borders in her question “How can the world dream or even talk of peace without a clearer understanding of the limits of national sovereignty?”
