In the area of human rights, following the Forward-Looking Strategies, especially paragraphs 178, 179, 182, the WILPF should concentrate on the implementation of women’s rights in the developing countries.

WILPF should bring to the United Nations Law Commission its concern that women in every country should have the right to credit, and to the ownership, control and cultivation of their own land.
