The 18th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 18 December, 1970-2 January, 1971 in New Delhi, India:

Every culture has contributions to make to the world.  We must develop sensitivity to common feelings, needs and aspirations, thus ruling out any discrimination on grounds of race, color, sex and religion.

The early years of childhood are crucial, since this is when prejudice and social values begin to be formed.  We ask UNESCO to produce a children’s edition of the “Courier”.

We recommend that Document 15/C/5 of UNESCO International Education Year 1970 should be used as the basis of continued action.  Special emphasis should be placed on Item (c) XII, “Promotion of ethical principles in education, especially through the moral and civic education of youth, with a view to promoting international understanding and peace”.
