dc.description.abstractAt the time, the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing was applauded as a massive turning point for the status of women's human rights worldwide. Gender mainstreaming, established in the Beijing Platform for Action2 as a major global strategy for the promotion of equality between men and women, was hailed as exactly what women needed for participation in areas where they had never previously been considered. Gender equality and women's empowerment would no longer be regarded as separate policy areas, independent of sectoral policies. Governments had eventually acknowledged, through the Platform for Action, that gender equality could not be achieved without changes in a wide variety of areas, including labour market, fiscal and financial policies. In every critical area of concern, governments and other actors were called on to 'promote an active and visible policy of mainstreaming a gender perspective into all policies and programmes, so that, before decisions are taken, an analysis is made of the effects for women and men, respectively.' 3en_IE
