The fourth world conference on women that was held on September 1995 was a way to acknowledge all Womens’ voice globally as a way to recognize and uphold the much effort women put in daily in playing their roles in the society. It was after a keen observation by a number of international organizations that triggered the move. As suggested, women's rights were not inalienable, visible and integrally effective in a way to empower women in all spheres of the world.
Among the common global causes which led to the Womens’ world conference were quite a number factored by common predicaments that women ought not to suffer. There was the notion of women’s status not being put into consideration that creates inequalities between men and women causing major obstacles leading to major consequences on all people. That poverty is based on social and economic growth as stated requires women involvement for its eradication. Violence which to a large extent cuts across Womens’ livelihood is a crucial factor that should be eliminated.
Race, culture, ethnicity, age, religion and disability are a hindrance to equal enjoyment rights which also form a barrier in women and girls fundamental freedom. Alongside that, it is considerate that international law which also includes humanitarian law is vital in protecting women and girls. The global trend that has over time shown profound changes in structures and strategies for family survival is a matter of concern especially on urban populations. It is however accompanied by profound consequences which may include sexual exploitation of women.
With the findings from the women's conference, a parallel world conference for men would result to comic contributions and comments. As much as women to an extent would blame men for their prolonged laxity and ignorance, men could to an extent also blame women for various misunderstandings and inappropriate considerations.
