Building peace in the minds of men and women

Turning point for women

On the occasion of International Women's Year, the Unesco Courier devotes this double number (a follow-up to its March 1975 issue) to different aspects of the status of women today and to the global struggle to eliminate the discrimination of which women are still the victims.

From this struggle there emerges the image of a new woman who rejects the taboos and outdated and humiliating stereotypes so long applied to her sex. Thrusting aside constraints, she intends henceforth to play her full part in social, cultural and political life. The World Conference of International Women's Year, which has just taken place in Mexico City (see article page 67) has demonstrated the vigour and spirit of the world-wide movement for women's liberation.
