Beijing and Beyond offers an invaluable and diverse compilation of perspectives, documents, and resources including the complete Platform for Action; excerpts from over twenty speeches delivered at The Fourth World Conference on Women including Gertrude Mongella, Bella Abzug, Leticia Ramos-Shahani, Hillary Clinton, Mohatarma Benazir Bhutto; and reports from Robin Morgan and Gloria Bonder which put the conference and The Platform for Action in perspective.

National reports on women's studies include those from South Africa, Uganda, Ghana, Hungary, Latvia, Turkey, Korea, China, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, and Peru. Topics covered include mainstreaming women's studies; women's history in a global perspective; women's studies and public policy; and shared visions of women's studies in the twenty-first century. This is the essential volume for anyone wanting to put the 1995 Beijing conference in perspective.
