En septiembre de 1995, representantes de 189 gobiernos y más de 2.100 organizaciones no gubernamentales (ONG) se reunieron en Beijing, China, para crear una nueva agenda para el empoderamiento y la igualdad de las mujeres. La conferencia oficial y el foro paralelo de las ONG fueron los mayores en la historia de la ONU, con más de 50.000 participantes y observadores. La conferencia también elaboró la Plataforma de Acción de Beijing, que todavía es el compromiso internacional con los derechos de las mujeres más abarcador. Patricia Licuanan, miembro del Consejo Global de IMOW, fue presidenta la comisión principal de la conferencia de Beijing, que elaboró la plataforma de acción.
