Gender and Human Development

image of Human Development Report 1995
The theme of the 1995 Human Development Report is gender and human development. The sixth in an annual series prepared by an independent team of eminent economists and social scientists, it analyses global trends in closing and widening gender gaps in different regions and countries. It shows graphically, that no country treats its women as well as its men and identifies a new action agenda for promoting gender equity in the decades ahead. This report has been prepared in advance of the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in September 1995.




One of the defining movements of the 20th century has been the relentless struggle for gender equality, led mostly by women, but supported by growing numbers of men. When this struggle finally succeeds-as it must-it will mark a great milestone in human progress. And along the way it will change most of today's premises for social, economic and political life.
