Beijing-PosterLThe historic Fourth World Conference for Women in 1995 created a 12-point Platform for Action that has been the basis for worldwide activism ever since, to ensure that women are full and equal partners in development. The Hunger Project had a large delegation at both the Third World Conference in Nairobi in 1985 and in Beijing in 1995. In many ways, it was the experience o Beijing that had The Hunger Project dramatically restructure its field programs to not only be women-focused, but to also be strategically designed to catalyze profound transformations in the deeply entrenched patriarchal social structures that were giving rise to hunger and extreme poverty.
